Clinton River Watershed Council is located at 1115 W. Avon Road (south side of Avon, just west of Livernois Road). Christmas trees will be accepted subject to all of the following conditions. No exceptions to these conditions will be made.

  • Residents of Rochester Hills may drop off trees during the announced days and hours only.
  • Trees shall be dropped off at the designated area only. Any other disposal, at or near the designated site, will constitute improper disposal and violators will be subject to ticketing.
  • Only natural Christmas trees will be accepted. No mass or commercial disposal is permitted. No disposal of any other materials, natural or artificial, is permitted.
  • All non-woody material, e.g., lights and wires, ornaments, rope, garland, stands and braces, bagging, etc., must be removed before drop off.
  • Volunteers will inspect trees for compliance with this order before accepting them for disposal. Trees or other matter that do not meet the restrictions will not be accepted.

Under contract with the City of Rochester Hills, Republic Services will collect discarded Christmas trees, which are devoid of any ropes, lights, metal, plastic, or other hangers, during Christmas week and the following three weeks ending January 15, 2017. Republic Services will deliver the trees they collect to a compost site rather than a landfill or disposal facility. Trees measuring greater than six feet tall must be cut in half prior to placement at curbside.
