Holiday Tree Recycling

  • Recology CleanScapes will collect unflocked, undecorated, natural trees in lengths up to 4 feet from Des Moines customers.
  • 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 at no additional charge. Contact customer service at 206.762.4900 or at DesMoines@recology.com by Sunday, December 31st 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.
