Live Christmas Tree Collection Schedule

Bloomington, Ind.–The Sanitation Division will continue picking up live Christmas trees and live wreaths until January 26, 2023. City residents should place their trees and wreaths at the curb for collection on their regular yard waste pick-up days.


All decorations and lights must be removed, and the trees and wreaths may not be in plastic bags. Items should be placed at the curb by 5 a.m. on collection day.


Composting and mulching your tree is the greenest way to reduce waste and create useful fertilizer for your yard or garden.


Additional questions should be directed to 812-349-3443.
