Winter Collection

Winter Compost It! collection is your opportunity to recycle your live Christmas tree and any remaining yard waste. Collection is December 28 through January 8, 2021 in participating communities.       Bag & Sticker Retailers 

To ensure your tree and yard waste get collected, follow these simple rules:

  • Remove all decorations from your tree and attach a Compost It! sticker. Wreaths and garland are not accepted.

  • Put yard waste in a Compost It! bag or a store-brand bag with a Compost It! sticker attached. If you have the Compost It! cart service, you can put your yard waste in it.

  • Set your tree and yard waste at the curb by 7 a.m. on your collection day. (Keep in mind, your day might be delayed by New Year’s Day that first week.)

Need a Compost It! sticker or bag? Stickers are sold at participating grocery and hardware stores for $1.25.

** Urbandale does not require Compost It! stickers on the trees, however stickers
are required for store-brand yard waste bags.
