Portage Offers Christmas Tree Recycling

The January Quarterly Curbside Brush Collection includes the collection of Christmas trees, in addition to the normal collection of brush and branches. Residents are asked to place brush and Christmas trees at the curbside by 7 a.m. on Monday of the designated week. Click here for a collection map and a list of items that are not collected during the program. 

Brush and Branches
Brush and branches of any length will be collected. Residents who are cutting longer branches are asked to cut them to a minimum length of four feet. Keep in mind, however, that the diameter must remain three inches or less. Residents are reminded that a small amount of debris may remain at the curb following brush removal and property owners are asked to assist with the final cleanup.

Christmas Trees
Christmas trees must be free of all decorations, including tinsel.  Trees can be placed at the curb whole - no trimming is necessary.

If you have any questions about the Quarterly Brush Pickup Program, please contact the Parks, Recreation & Public Services Department at 329-4444.
