Don’t Take a Holiday from Recycling

City of Sacramento residential yard waste customers can place trees in the street for pickup as part of the City’s Leaf Season service. Leaf Season collection occurs November through January. The last day that trees, or any yard waste, can be placed out on the street for collection is January 27, 2019. Residents can find their estimated pickup date on our Collection Calendar at

  • Trees should be clean of all lights, tinsel, tree stands, nails, and decorations.

  • Flocked trees will be accepted.

  • The city will collect up to 5 trees at a time. Loads in excess of 5 trees will only be accepted at Elder Creek, Kiefer Landfill and the North Area Recovery Station.

  • If you miss the citywide tree collection, you can put your tree in your yard waste container. Please cut the tree into pieces that will fit completely into the container with the lid closed.
