2019 Holiday Tree Pickup

posted Dec 3, 2019, 4:53 AM by Town of Ithaca   [ updated Dec 3, 2019, 4:54 AM ]

The Town of Ithaca Public Works Department will be picking up discarded holiday trees after the Christmas holiday and will continue throughout the Town through Tuesday, January 21st, as our schedule allows.

The intention of the Town’s tree collection service is for residents of the Town of Ithaca (outside the Village of Cayuga Heights) to discard their holiday trees by putting them out at the roadside for pick up by the Town’s crews.

The crews will not be picking up any brush or yard debris during this collection.  This collection is specific to discarded holiday trees only.

Trees need to remain out of the rights-of-way; this will assure your safety and that of your neighbors. Errant trees can wreak havoc on the storm water systems and can create a hazard for walkers and cyclists.

You may also drop your discarded holiday tree(s) off at the Public Works Facility at 114 Seven Mile Drive, Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. through 2:30 p.m. any time of the year.
