It's that time of the year again! The City Of Vallejo is sponsoring tree recycling for the holidays.

Volunteers will pick-up your tree from the curb on the Saturdays listed below:
   • December 30th

A Treecycle flyer is available here.

Residents also have the opportunity to drop-off holiday trees at VALCORE Recycling for free between Tuesday, December 26th and Monday, January 29th (no flocked trees or stands will be accepted).  

Residents with larger yard waste carts can also cut their trees and fit them into the cart for pick-up. Whole trees will not be accepted if in the cart, and no flocked trees or stands will be recycled.
