Christmas Tree Collection Schedule

Christmas Tree Collection Schedule
Christmas trees and other yard waste will be collected in the city of Allentown during the weeks of Sunday, January 5 and Sunday, January 19.

Residents should put out their tree and other yard waste on their recycling night.

• Please do not place the tree in a plastic bag.
• Make sure all decorations and the stand are removed.
• Other yard waste must be in containers, paper lawn bags or bundled. No plastic bags allowed.
• No artificial trees will be accepted.
• Collection is weather dependent.

The Yard Waste Site at 1401 Oxford Drive will be open on Saturday, January 4 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. for yard waste drop-off.

The Bureau of Recycling and Solid Waste recycles the trees by grinding them into mulch which is then available to Allentown residents when the site is open.
