Indianapolis is making it easier than ever to dispose of live Christmas trees after the holiday season.
From January 1 – January 31, trash crews will pick up live Christmas trees curbside as part of regular trash pick up at no additional charge to residents.
To be collected, all you need to do is prep them by following these guidelines:
- Remove all lights and ornaments from trees.
- Cut and bundle trees in 3-foot to 4-foot sections.
- If you are unable to cut and bundle your tree you may leave your tree at the curb on your monthly heavy trash collection day. Trees left for pick-up on heavy trash days do not need to be cut and bundled. Each tree will count as one heavy trash item.
- Place the tree at the curb on your regular trash collection day in January.
If you prefer to take your tree to a collection site, you may still drop your tree at Indy Parks locations as they have done in years past at any of the following parks locations:
- Broad Ripple Park, 1610 Broad Ripple Ave., South lot
- Ellenberger Park, 5301 E. St. Clair Street, Main parking lot
- Garfield Park, 2432 Conservatory Drive, MacAllister Center
- Krannert Park, 605 S. High School Road, North parking lot
- Perry Park, 451 Stop 11 Road, Southwest side of parking lot near pool
- Riverside Park, 2420 N. Riverside Drive, Tennis court parking lot
- Sahm Park, 6801 E. 91st Street, Soccer field parking lot
- Northwestway Park, 5253 W. 62nd Street, Near the recycling bins
