The City of Denton collects and composts more than 1,000 Christmas trees every year and turns them into Dyno Dirt products. This year, curbside collection of undecorated, non-artificial, non-flocked trees will occur Dec. 26 through Jan. 31.

After removing all decorations—including lights, ornaments, tinsel, wire, ribbon, tree skirts, and stands—call (940) 349-8700 to schedule a free tree collection. Once scheduled, place real trees at the curb at least four feet away from carts and other objects by 7 a.m. on your scheduled collection day. Artificial, flocked, or decorated trees cannot be composted and will not be collected as brush. If you have an artificial, flocked, or decorated tree it can be scheduled as a bulky item pickup by calling (940) 349-8700.If you do not have curbside service, real trees can be taken to the City of Denton Landfill, 1527 S Mayhill Rd., and it will be composted at no charge Dec. 26 through Jan. 31. Extra holiday recycling, such as large cardboard boxes, may also be taken to the landfill or one of the public recycling drop-off centers at no cost.

Recycling Drop-Off Center Locations:
North Lakes Park, Windsor Drive at Hinkle Drive
703 N. Elm St., West Congress Street at North Elm Street

You may also take any excess trash accumulated during the holiday season to the landfill for a fee. Excess trash may also be stored and placed in the trash cart weekly until all excess trash is disposed. Trash placed outside the cart will not be collected.
