Catawba County Offers Easy Disposal Of Christmas Trees

Catawba County Government
News Release

So what do you do with that Christmas tree when the holiday is over?  If you live in Catawba county, you'll be glad to know that Christmas trees and other natural decorations will be accepted curbside and at all five Solidwaste Convenience Centers from December 26th through January 18th. No ornaments, bases, or other decorations should be left on the trees.

Residents who have curbside collection service with Republic Services can 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.
