City of Georgetown residents can recycle their real Christmas trees on your yard trimmings collection day, which is your first recycling day of the month. You can find your day here. Be sure to remove all decorations and lights from the tree.
Trees seven feet in length or less can be placed at the curb uncut. Longer trees should be cut into sections. No artificial trees.
Please recycle boxes and wrapping paper, if your cart gets full you can put the excess into a larger box and set it by your recycling cart.
