If you find any errors or omissions in our listings, we'd appreciate it if you to report them to: clientrelations@earth911.com

In general, holiday trees and wreaths are collected the first two weeks of January from properties that receive Department of Public Works trash and recycling collection services. Trees should be placed where trash and recyclables are collected.
