Holiday Tree Collection


Ottumwa, Iowa – Ottumwa residents wishing to dispose of live Christmas trees can leave them on the curb for regular weekly bulky item collection in the month of January.  The trees are recycled into mulch and must be free of tinsel and decorations, and cannot be in a bag.  Trees over six feet in height should be cut in half for collection. Contact Bridge City Sanitation at 641-682-1700 with any questions.

  • January 18 (both north and south on Thursday due to MLK Holiday)  
  • January 23 (south side)                 January 25 (north side)
