Christmas Tree Collection
Christmas trees are collected on the regular yard waste collection schedule. All decorations and tinsel should be removed before placing trees at the curbside.
The City of Raleigh Yard Waste Center, which opened in 1992, serves as the recycling center for yard waste collected by City crews as part of the Solid Waste Services Department’s curbside collection program. Items such as grass clippings, shrubbery trimmings, leaves, limbs, logs, brush, pine straw, and hay are recycled into wood chips, mulch and compost, which are then made available to the general public for purchase. In addition to yard waste collected, the center also accepts yard waste from the public for a nominal fee. The yard waste must be generated inside the Raleigh City limits.
