Christmas tree collection begins in central Indiana


INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – It’s that time of year. After all the holiday cheer and excitement the cleanup must begin.

First thing you have to do, no matter where you live, is make sure your tree is free of lights, ornaments or tinsel. No artificial trees are accepted.

Indianapolis residents can drop off trees at various sites from now until Jan. 31. Curbside pickup will not be available.

Indianapolis drop off locations are:

  • Broad Ripple Park (1610 Broad Ripple Avenue) south lot
  • Ellenberger Park (5301 East St. Clair Street) west of pool in main parking lot
  • Garfield Park (2432 Conservatory Drive) MacAllister Center
  • Gustafson Park (3110 Moller Road) near the front entrance
  • Krannert Park (605 South High School Road) north parking lot
  • Northwestway Park (5253 W. 62nd St.) near the recycling bins
  • Perry Park (451 East Stop 11 Road) soccer field parking lot
  • Riverside Park (2420 East Riverside Drive) tennis court parking lot
  • Sahm Park (6801 East 91st Street) soccer field parking lot

For Johnson County residents, you can drop off trees at four locations:

  • Johnson County Fairgrounds
  • Center Grove High School
  • Indian Creek Intermediate School
  • McCarty Mulch

It goes from Monday through Jan. 11. Greenwood will remove trees from curbs. Trees should not be bagged.

Whiteland’s street department will remove trees from curbs in front of houses.

Franklin residents can put trees between the sidewalk and the street between Jan. 4 and 15 on trash days.

Carmel residents should leave their tree on the curb but cut it in half.

Those are just a few examples. Check with your town or city if you’re not sure how to get rid of your tree.
