Holiday Tree Collection

Recology will collect unflocked, undecorated, natural trees in lengths up to 4 feet.  Des Moines customers who subscribe to food/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 food/yard waste service may schedule collection of properly prepared trees during the first two full weeks in (January 4-8 and January 11-15) at no additional charge.  Contact customer service at 206.762.4900 or at DesMoines@recology.com by Friday, January 1st to schedule a tree collection. 

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