Cut trees into segments of no more than 4’ in length. Short lengths allow the tree to easily come out of the cart when it is emptied. Fill your compost cart first, then set out remaining segments (no more than 60 lbs. in weight) next to your cart on collection day. Wreaths and trees sprayed with artificial snow (flock) cannot be accepted and should be placed into the trash.
Reduce and Reuse
Consider investing in an artificial Christmas tree that can be used every holiday season.
Crush the pine needles and place in a bowl for wintry potpourri or place in small fabric bags for fragrant sachets.
