treeHoliday Tree Collection

Real trees and wreaths that are clear of wrappings, wire, metal, nails and tree stands can be placed at the curb on regular collection days and will be chipped into mulch. Do not put trees in alleys.

Our Public Works team will collect trees from the curb. Be aware that your tree collection may occur at any time in the month of January. Please have your tree on the curb by January 26.

Recycle Your String Lights

Traditional holiday lights cannot be placed in the curbside collection, so a group of Wauwatosa residents are organizing a special collection.

Bring your string lights to the collection boxes in the main corridor between the Library and City Hall. This is available during the month of January.
