Proper disposal of Christmas trees in Washington County

Washington Co., WI – With Christmas 2019 in the rear-view mirror, neighbors across Washington County are already pulling down their Christmas trees.

First, make sure your tree is ready:

  • Remove all ornaments, lights, tinsel and garland from tree
  • Do not put the tree in a plastic bag;
  • Do not block the sidewalk;
  • Do not plant the tree in a snowbank. This makes it hard to distinguish from live trees.

Town of Addison – Christmas trees may be brought to the brush collection site located on the north side of WI-33, east of the Rock River and west of Norse Building Products on Saturday,  January 5, 2020 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

City of West Bend – Christmas trees will be collected curbside on the SAME DAY as your garbage day pick up January 14-17, 2020.
