Options Available for Christmas Tree Disposal

With the holiday season winding down, the City of Yakima does offer city residents an option for Christmas tree disposal. Residents can schedule an appointment with the City’s Refuse Division for tree pick up by calling 509-575-6005.

The cost is $10.00 for trees up to 5 feet and $15.00 for trees greater than 5 feet.

Taller trees need to be cut in half before pick-up. If residents have more than one tree they need to call the Refuse Division to schedule a special haul.

There is also a Christmas tree recycling opportunity that benefits a local non-profit.

Camp Prime Time offers a Christmas tree recycling service to benefit its recreational facility for families who have a child with a serious or terminal illness or is developmentally disabled. Christmas trees can be taken to Pape Machinery Agriculture and Turf (formerly Washington Tractor), 3110 Fruitvale Boulevard, between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm through January 8th. Financial donations are accepted to benefit Camp Prime Time.

This tree recycling service is provided by Camp Prime Time volunteers, Pape Machinery, DTG Recycle, Pacific Power, Trickinnex Tree Trimming & Falling, LLC, Cliff’s Septic Service, City of Yakima Refuse Division, Yakima County Public Services –  Solid Waste Division, All American Propane, National Barricade and Thrivent Financial.
