Holiday Tree Collection

Recology will collect unflocked, undecorated, natural holiday trees in lengths up to 4 feet. Burien customers who subscribe to food and yard waste collection service may place trees out for collection on their regularly scheduled food/yard waste collection day.   

Residential customers who do not subscribe to organics collection may schedule collection of properly prepared trees during the first two full weeks in January at no additional charge.  (January 4-8 and January 11-15). Contact customer service at 206.767.3322 or at by Friday, January 1st to schedule a tree collection. 

Flocked trees are not accepted with food/yard waste collection because flocking contains non-compostable materials including adhesives, flame retardant, or additives.  Flocked trees may be disposed as garbage for an additional fee.
