Winter Collection

Winter Compost It! collection is your opportunity to recycle your live Christmas tree and any remaining yard waste. Collection is January 2 through January 12, 2018 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.
