How to get rid of your old Christmas Tree

It's time to get rid of your Christmas tree

If councils do not collect Christmas trees in January, many of us also choose to take it to the garden waste section of the tip. Yep, we're talking about kicking your Christmas tree to the curb.

In most places, people who leave trees out with tinsel on them won't have them picked up.

Large trees over five feet tall will need to be cut into smaller pieces to allow them to fit into the collection vehicle.

The capital city is again helping homeowners get rid of their natural Christmas trees once the holiday season is over. The tree should be left outside your property where you would normally leave your bins. Tins and cans, as well as paper and cardboard items, are also suitable for recycling. SFBay regrets the error.

"Whether your tradition is to put up your Christmas tree right after Thanksgiving or just before Christmas, trees should be taken down promptly, and disposed of properly", said Deputy Fire Marshal Maribel Fournier. The town Highway Department doesn't pick up trees, but it will chip trees brought to the highway garage.

"There were a few years, from 2004 to 2014, where it was very hard for us - we were selling trees below the cost of production, because we had a surplus", he said. In addition to the environmental cost, there are financial ones: local government estimated it costs $4 in fees and landfill taxes for each tree dumped. "They'll end up packed in a snowbank, or they'll get iced in".
