Christmas Tree collection starts Jan. 3


MADISON (WKOW) -- The City of Madison Streets Division will begin collecting Christmas trees on Tuesday, January 3.

The Streets Division will process the trees at the curb with on-street chippers, which the Division says are expensive and can be easily damaged if foreign material enters the machine. 

To protect the equipment and the crews' safety, the Streets Division ask that all residents follow these rules:

  • All trees are chipped at the curb.
  • Place trees at the street edge only
  • Remove and discard tree bags
  • Remove all tree stands, ornaments, lights and other metal objects
  • Trees that are not properly prepared will NOT be collected.

Collection Schedule

  • Round 1: Tuesday, January 3
  • Round 2: Tuesday, January 17
