Tree-Cycle After the Holidays
Holiday trees are only used for a few weeks out of the year, and recycling or reusing them can be a great way to limit holiday waste. Cut, real holiday trees will be accepted at the curb by Republic Services through Monday, January 7, 2019. Don’t let your tree go to a landfill!
Be sure to remove all lights, ornaments, tinsel, and garland, as well as the metal or plastic stand. Set the bare tree at the curb. If your tree is more than 6 feet tall, please cut it in half for safe and easy collection. If you don’t take your tree down until after January 7, 2019, please cut it into pieces that will fit into your yardwaste container with the lid closed. You can also recycle holiday wreaths and greenery in your yardwaste container. The wreaths and greenery must also be bare, so please remove all wire, hooks, bows, and other decorations.
Collected trees and greenery are turned into mulch, compost, and ground cover. If your family enjoys an artificial tree, pack it up for next year. If you are discarding an artificial tree or wreath, please place it into the waste container. Artificial trees and wreaths are not recyclable.
