Christmas trees and other natural decorations will be accepted curbside and at all five of Catawba County’s Solidwaste Convenience Centers from December 26, 2020 through January 16, 2021. Remove all ornaments, bases, or other decorations before recycling.
Residents who have curbside collection service with Republic Services may put their used Christmas tree out with their garbage on their curbside collection day. Trees will be picked up by a separate Republic Services truck.
Customers that normally receive residential trash and recycling curbside service on Friday, December 25 will have their trash picked up on Saturday, December 26. Republic Services will resume their regular curbside service schedule on Monday, December 28, 2020.
Some municipalities in Catawba County are handling tree pickup separately within their boundaries, so residents of municipalities should check with the government office in their city or town to be sure of the schedule and procedure they should follow.
