Algonquin providing recycling for Christmas trees

No ornaments, tinsel, nails or tree stands. To promote recycling and prevent unnecessary fires the city has offered drop-off locations for trees within in the city. (760) 727-1600 or edcodisposal.com. Christmas trees will be accepted free of charge for recycling from DE residents at the facilities listed below.

Curbside tree pickup service is available to customers but tree pieces must be under 3 feet long. Residents can put their trees where trash and recycling are normally placed along the curb, and the trees will be collected when trash and recycling are picked up by the Department of Public Works. Do not lean the tree against any structures and instead place it in a designated decomposition pile.

If disposing of a Christmas tree at home, treat the tree as garden waste.

Yes, the New Year's Day holiday does affect your curbside collection schedule. Trees will not be accepted from commercial haulers or tree vendors without prior approval.

When the holidays are over, don't forget to treecycle your "live" Christmas tree.

Garbage trucks will make one pass through each neighborhood to collect trees between January 11 and January 13. The RCTS is open daily from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm (closed Christmas Day and New Years Day). (760) 745-3203 or escondidodisposal.com.

Healdsburg residents can have their trees picked up on their regular collection day the weeks of December 26 through January 6.

According to the National Christmas Tree Association, trees can also be reused as fish and bird feeders, soil erosion barriers, and hiking trail paths. (858) 748-7769 or edcodisposal.com. If your tree isn't in the cart, you may be charged for the additional pick up. Others require homeowners to drop off old trees. Residents may take them to the disposal site by Wednesday, Jan. 10.
