Real Christmas Trees

You can put real Christmas trees at the curb the morning after your regular trash day for yard waste pick up. All decorations MUST be removed. They must be less than 6' long with a trunk less than 6" in diameter and weigh less than 50 lbs. If your tree exceeds any one of these requirements, please cut down into smaller pieces. They will then be picked up at no charge and mulched at our City landfill.

If you live in a multi-family unit and do not have curbside trash services through the City of Little Rock, you can donate your real Christmas tree to Arkansas Game and Fish Commission for use as fish habitat in a local waterway. All decorations MUST be removed. Please transport your tree to an approved drop-off location listed here.


Fake Christmas Trees

Plastic and/or man-made trees are not able to be recycled or composted, as they are made up of multiple materials that are hard to separate. If your tree can be used by another household and seems in fair condition, please consider donation first. If it is broken or missing pieces, it will need to be disposed of in the landfill. If there are lights attached, please remove them if possible and recycle the lights as e-waste

You can opt for a bulky-item pick up, if you are unable to transport the tree to the landfill yourself and are a residential solid waste customer for the City of Little Rock.
