Kirkland Encourages You to “Tree-cycle”


The City of Kirkland offers the following “tree-cycling” tips and a reminder about garbage and recycling collection in case of inclement weather:

Free Curbside pickup by Waste Management, Inc.:  Whole, unflocked trees will be collected from Tuesday, January 3 to Friday, January 13, by Waste Management at no additional costs. Please remove all tinsel and lights from the tree. For residents with curbside waste collection, place your tree next to your grey yard waste cart on your regular collection day.  For residents in apartments and condos, place your tree next to your garbage cart(s) or dumpster(s).
