Per the City of DeKalb:
The City offers a special collection of live Christmas trees for the first two weeks in January through regular curbside refuse collection. Trees should be left at the curb on your regular collection day.
- Flocked trees, trees with shiners, tinsel, light bulbs, glitter, wire or plastic or in plastic bags will not be included in this special collection and are considered a large item.
- Lightbulbs should be completely removed from live trees and artificial trees when possible and recycled at County events.
