The Christmas tree recycling period is underway in Catawba County. Trees and other natural decorations will be accepted curbside and at all five Solid Waste Convenience Centers located around Catawba County now through January 15, 2022. Please 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.
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.
