Annual Christmas Tree Pick-Up and Recycling Day

The annual Scouts BSA Christmas Tree Pick-Up and Recycling Day comes to Napa on Saturday, January 6th, 2024.

Your local Scouts BSA Troops request the following:

  • Please have your tree on the curb by 9:00am on Saturday morning. Please DO NOT set out your tree earlier in the week, since tree collection will not take place until Saturday, January 6th.
  • Trees must be free of ornaments, nails, tinsel, stands and metal spikes. All are contaminants or safety hazards.
  • A voluntary donation of $10-15 per tree is suggested and appreciated. Please do not leave money on the tree!
  • Scouts will come to your door. Please leave a check made out to “Boy Scouts of America” in an envelope at your door.
PLEASE NOTE: Customers in Napa County who miss the January 6th Scouts BSA tree pick-up may place their tree out for collection on their normal service day beginning the following Monday, January 8th. Please follow the above tree preparation guidelines and cut trees over 8′ in half. Flocked trees are not accepted and must be disposed of as trash. Wreaths, pumpkins and other holiday greenery go in the compost cart.

At our Napa Recycling and Composting Facility, we recycle all your trees and holiday greenery into compost, mulch or fuel for renewable energy.

Fire Safety Tips for Natural Christmas Trees

As you deck the halls this holiday season, be fire smart. A small fire that spreads to a Christmas tree can grow very large quickly. The following tips will ensure you have the freshest—and the safest—tree possible:

Picking the tree

  • Choose a tree with fresh, green needles that do not fall off when touched.

Placing the tree

  • Before placing the tree in the stand, cut 2” from the base of the trunk.
  • Make sure the tree is at least 3 feet away from any heat source, like fireplaces, heaters, candles or lamps.
  • Make sure the tree is not blocking an exit.
  • Add water to the tree stand daily if needed to keep the trunk submerged.

Lighting the tree

  • Use lights that have the label of an independent testing laboratory. Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use.
  • Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Connect no more than three strands of mini string sets and a maximum of 50 bulbs for screw-in bulbs. Read manufacturer’s instructions for the number of LED strands to connect.
  • Never use candles to decorate the tree.
  • Always turn off Christmas tree lights before leaving home or going to bed.

After Christmas

  • Remove the tree after Christmas or when it is dry.
  • Dried out trees are a fire danger and should not be left in the home or garage or placed against the home.
  • Never burn a tree in the fireplace or a woodstove.
  • After the holidays, keep your tree in a secure location before collection day to prevent arson or vandalism. ❆ ❆ ❆
