Holiday Tree Roundup

Every year the City partners with Scout Troop 222 to provide curbside pick-up of holiday trees for Lacey residents who live within the city limits. Residents must remove all decorations and place their tree at the curb by 8:00 a.m. Trees with ornaments, tinsel, or stands will not be accepted as they cannot be recycled. Apartment residents should check with managers for locations to place their trees.

Tree pick-up typically occurs first Saturday of the year in January. Check back in this December for details.

Scout Troop 222 accepts donations for this great community service. Donations can be made:

  • Online
  • By mail to Scout Troop 222, PO Box 5379, Lacey, WA 98509 – Please make checks payable to Troop 222.

This service is offered to Lacey residents only. If you live outside the Lacey city limits, you can take your tree to the Thurston County Waste and Recovery Center. Often tree are excepted at this location free of charge for a limited period of time in January.

Pacific Disposal customers may place trees cut into 3-foot sections in, or next to, the yard-waste container on regularly scheduled yard-waste collection days.

Regardless of how they are collected, all trees end up at the Thurston County Waste and Recovery Center for recycling.
