For City of Marietta residents, the City of Marietta will offer free Christmas tree pick up service to residents with normally scheduled yard waste service.
To utilize this service, residents must have the tree on the curbside by 7am and the trees must be free of all decorations. If customers place their trees out during the first or second week of January, then those trees will be collected with yard waste or at random.
Trees with lights, stands, tinsel, ornaments, or nails will be picked up as garbage on the next pick up day.
