Cities offer options for Christmas tree disposal


When the holiday season ends, many families look for ways to dispose of live Christmas trees. Here is a list of disposal options for local residents:

Carmel: Christmas tree pickup is included in the Carmel City trash pickup service at no additional cost. Cut Christmas trees in half and lay them next to the trash cart. 

Fishers: The City of Fishers offers a free tree recycling program sponsored by Sambol’s Tree Farm. Residents can drop off bare, live trees through Feb. 1 at Brooks School Park, Roy G. Holland Memorial Park or Cumberland Park. For more, visit

Lawrence:  Each household can put out one tree for disposal. Trees are mulched by Republic Services.

Noblesville: Republic Services will collect Christmas trees from Dec. 26 until Jan. 10. Trees will be collected on the same day and in the same location as residents’ trash/recycle collection. Trees must be cut into sections of no more than 4 feet per section and placed inside the trash cart so that the automated arm of the trucks can place them in the truck. Trees lying on the ground besides trash containers will not be collected. For more, call Republic Services at 317-567-6400.

Westfield: Ray’s Trash Service will pick up one Christmas tree per household. The tree must be cut into 4-foot sections. Pickups will run from Dec. 26 to Jan. 17.

Zionsville: The Town of Zionsville offers no service for live Christmas tree disposal. Residents should call their trash service to inquire about options.
