Tis the Season for Holiday Trees & Greenery Collection


January 3, 2024 – March 2, 2024

The DC Department of Public Works (DPW) will collect holiday trees and greenery January 3 through March 2 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 within 5 days of set out.
  • Holiday trees and greenery will be collected from the front of the residence at the curb. For missed collections, residents can call 311 and make a “Christmas Tree Removal - Seasonal” service request from January 3, 2024 – March 2, 2024.
  • All residents can also drop-off holiday trees and greenery at three locations:
    Monday through Friday, 8 AM – 4 PM:
    • 201 Bryant St. NW (Roll off box)
    • Guy Mason Recreation Center (3600 Calvert St NW)
    • 2700 South Capital St., SE (Roll off Box)
  • Holiday Greenery that needs collection after March 2 should be placed next to resident cans for regular collection.
