Holiday Trash Collection
Community Waste Disposal (CWD) will collect up to five extra bags of trash on your first collection day after Christmas. Place the bags at your collection point at least two feet from trash and recycling carts.
Christmas Tree Disposal
CWD offers curbside tree collection (natural trees only) on your assigned trash day through Friday, Jan. 13, 2023. Place your natural tree at the collection point at least two feet from trash and recycling carts. Trees must be stripped of all lights, tinsel, ornaments, hooks and tree stands. If your tree is over six feet tall, you may cut it in half for collection.
Allen residents also can compost natural trees at the Texas Pure Products Wood Grinding Facility. Please bring a current City of Allen water bill and a driver’s license with matching address to enter the facility.
Flocked / artificial trees
Because artificial trees cannot be composted, they will not be collected as yard waste. You may dispose of flocked or artificial trees by scheduling a pickup on your assigned bulk trash collection day or bring them to the NTMWD Custer Road Transfer Station.
Please bring a current City of Allen water bill and a driver’s license with matching address to enter the facility.
