Happy holidays, Recology Clackamas community! Not sure what to do with your holiday tree? Follow these City of Portland guidelines or check out the city’s site to learn more.

For real trees, first remove all trimmings from your tree, including lights, ornaments, tinsel, and tree stand. Then, you have two options: 

  1. Set out your whole tree (6 feet or shorter), next to your compost bin, for a $5.25 charge. 
  2. Cut your tree into pieces (3 feet or shorter), and place in your compost bin for no extra charge 

Artificial trees and trees “flocked” with fake snow should be disposed of as garbage. To set out a whole artificial or flocked tree, contact us for a cost estimate.
