‘Tis the Season for Holiday Trees & Greenery Collection

The DC Department of Public Works (DPW) has extended its 2020-21 vacuum leaf and holiday tree collections for residents who receive DPW trash and recycling services. Both collections continue through February 27.

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:
