2023 Collection Service:

To allow our employees time with their families, there is no collection service on Christmas or New Year’s Day.

New Year’s Day 2023 falls on a Sunday, so your service will be uninterrupted.

Christmas Day 2023 falls on a Monday, so your service will be delayed by one day. If your pickup is usually on Monday, service will be on Tuesday. Normally scheduled Tuesday pickup will be done on Wednesday, and so on. 

Please note that our Recycling Center & Transfer Station – RCTS, also known as Contra Costa Waste Services, is closed on Christmas and New Year’s Day only.

Recycle Your Christmas Tree For FREE!

There are 2 easy ways to recycle your Christmas tree!

Remember to remove all decorations and the stand so we can recycle it!

AT THE CURB: Scheduled in advance, Christmas trees will be picked up curbside at no additional charge. Trees over 3 feet must be cut into 3-feet sections before placing the pieces inside or next to your yard waste cart. Pieces larger than 3 feet cannot fit inside the truck.

DROP OFF: Take it to our Recycling Center and Transfer Station (RCTS) (Contra Costa Waste Services) located at:
1300 Loveridge Rd, Pittsburg, during regular business hours. Christmas trees will be taken at no charge – limit one tree per vehicle.

NOTE: Remove all tinsel, ornaments, and tree stand. Flocked trees cannot be recycled and must be disposed of as garbage — consider using an artificial flocked tree that can be reused year after year.
