Christmas/Holiday Tree Collection

Christmas/Holiday Tree Collection

The City of Champaign offers two convenient options to recycle your Christmas/Holiday tree in January.

Curbside Collection: To enjoy this free service, residents simply place their tree within four feet of the curb before 6:00 am on their scheduled pickup day. Trees will be collected in the Orange Zone on Monday, January 8 and in the Blue Zone on Wednesday, January 10.  Collected trees are chipped and made into garden mulch. The City will not collect trees with stands, decorations, tinsel, lights, artificial snow/frost, plastic bags, or any other material that makes the tree non-recyclable.

Drop Off Site:  Trees may also be taken to the Landscape Recycling Center (1210 E. University Avenue, Urbana) at no cost during the month of January. Call 217-344-5323 for hours and details.

For more information, please call Champaign Public Works at 217-403-4700.
