Holiday Tree Recycling

The City of Frisco provides curbside holiday tree recycling to all residents for their convenience. All live trees collected will be recycled (made into compost and mulch). Trees MUST comply with the following guidelines to ensure pickup:

  • Do cut trees over 5 feet high into sections - no more than 4 feet in length or 60 lbs each.
  • Do not cover tree with a plastic bag, as this will prevent pickup.
  • Do place trees out on regular trash / recycling collection day, at edge of property, at least 3 feet from carts.
  • Do remove supports (metal and wood), electrical wiring, lights, tinsel, ornaments and all other decorations.

Flocked trees are not accepted. Flocked trees are sprayed with a chemical to look like they are covered with snow. The chemical component in flocking material prevents composting of these trees. Call Frisco Environmental Services to schedule a bulk pick-up to remove your flocked tree 972-292-5900.

Pumpkins and Hay Bales

Yard waste does not belong in either your blue recycle or your black trash bin. Leaves and lawn clippings belong in brown paper, compostable bags. branches need to be less than 3 feet long, lighter than 30 pounds and bundled with rope or twine. Place landscaping leftovers like gourds in your yard waste bags and hay bales set out with your other yard waste. View more information on residential yard waste.

Do It Yourself Disposal

Do-It-Yourself Disposal for trees and extra holiday trash is also available at the Custer Road Transfer Station (9901 Custer Road in Plano). Residents may bring their driver's license and a matching, current copy of their Frisco water bill to receive up to 2 free visits per month. Live, natural trees (not flocked) can be recycled at the Transfer Station, and flocked trees / artificial trees can be discarded as trash.
