- The annual tree collection will be for 2 weeks starting on Monday the 4th and ending on Friday the 15th.
- Trees need to be placed curbside by 7am with:
- NO PLASTIC BAGS
- NO DECORATIONS / LIGHTS
- NO TREE STANDS
- Neighborhoods with multiple collections will only receive designated collection on their FIRST recycling day.
Thanks for your help in keeping the trees out of the waste stream and adding to the City of Boston’s diversion rate.
Remove all ornaments, decorations, and stands from trees and place trees at the curb by 7am on your recycling day.
For the North End, recycling days are Monday, January 4th and 11th. If your building puts trash in a dumpster, trees should be placed next to the dumpster for collection. Do not put trees in plastic bags.
Residents of buildings with private trash pickup should check with their landlord or management company.
Remember, the City’s “Recycle More” single stream program allows residents to mix all recycling together, including wrapping paper.
If you miss these recycling times, call 617-635-4959 for possible additional date or dates in January.
