Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Again we want to thank you for your business and we look forward to serving you in 2022!

Regarding Christmas Tree Disposal

Removal will begin the week of January 10th thru the 15th. Trees should be placed curbside by 7am on your scheduled collection day.

For our twice a week collection customers, if the tree is not removed on your first pick up of the week it will be removed on the second. Leave it at the curb.

If tree is longer than 6 feet please cut the tree in half and place both sections curbside for pick up. Trees will continue to be picked up even if placed curbside after the week the 15th.

For those individuals that don’t want their trees landfilled, you may donate your tree to the Burning Bush as long as it is free of ornaments, lights, tinsel and decorations, etc. You can also contact other local compost facilities (New Earth, Gardenville, City of San Antonio) to see if they will accept your tree.

Thank you and Happy New Year
