Free Pick Up of Christmas Trees Jan. 1-14
The City of Santa Cruz offers residents two date options for free pick up of Christmas trees from January 1 to 14. Residents may also drop their trees off at the Resource Recovery Facility throughout the month of January at no charge. In all cases, ornaments, tinsel and stands must be removed. Flocked trees will not be accepted. Residents who desire curbside pickup service must put their tree out on their regularly scheduled trash collection day. Trees must be 6 feet in length or less; therefore trees may need to be cut.
