‘Tis the Season for Holiday Trees & Greenery Collection

The DC Department of Public Works (DPW) will collect holiday trees and greenery January 11 through February 5 from DPW-serviced households, which includes single-family homes and apartment dwellings with three or fewer units.

Here is what you need to know about this year’s holiday tree and greenery collection:

  • Trees and greenery collected during this time will be composted in support of Mayor Bowser’s Zero Waste initiative. 
  • Holiday trees and greenery will be collected from the normal point of collection on trash days. 
  • For missed collections, residents can call 311 and make a “Christmas Tree Removal - Seasonal” service request or December 28, 2020 – February 5, 2021, 
  • All residents can also drop-off holiday trees and greenery at the following four locations:

Monday through Saturday, 8 AM – 4 PM:

  • Benning Road Transfer Station (3200 Benning Road NE)
