Town of Burke Christmas Tree & Yard Waste Collection

Christmas Trees

Town of Burke residents have one Christmas tree collection in January each year. The dates will change each year and this webpage will be updated once scheduled. 

Remove all ornaments, lights, etc. Place the trees curbside, perpendicular to the street with the cut end facing the street. Trees will not be collected if buried in the snow or frozen to the ground.

Place your trees out by 6:00 a.m. on Monday. We will make one trip through the township during that week.

  • 1/17/22 - 1/21/22

Yard Waste

Town of Burke residents usually have two spring pickups and two fall pickups for yard waste each year. The dates will change each year and this webpage will be updated once scheduled.

Yard waste and grass clippings must placed in either a reusable container, compostable bags, or in plastic bags. Bags and/or containers must be no more than 32-gallons. Plastic bags should be left open, untied. The empty plastic bags will be left behind for the resident to dispose of; please leave a container for the driver to place them in so they do not blow away. Loose yard waste or yard waste on tarps will not be collected. Contaminated bags or containers will not be collected.

Place your bags/containers curbside by 6:00 a.m. on the Monday of your collection week. We will make one trip through the township during that week.
