The City of Waterloo has set the dates for curbside collection of 'real' Christmas tree pick.

Waterloo's Sanitation Department will again provide free curbside collection of Christmas trees. This will occur during the regular garbage pick up dates. It begins on Tuesday, January 9th and runs through Friday, January 19th.

Officials have asked that everyone remove all garbage from the tree. Also place your tree(s) clear of garbage cans to eliminate interference with garbage can pick-up.

Trees over 6 feet in length must be cut in half.


  • Be wrapped in plastic bags
  • Contain any metal, wire, plastic, decorations
  • Removed from base.

Flocked trees, artificial trees, trees with decorations/lights/garland will not be collected. Wreaths and other manufactured products containing wire should be disposed of through regular garbage service.

If you have any further questions please call 291-4455.
