Now What Do We Do With Our Christmas Tree?

Now that Christmas Day is behind us, it's time to think about disposing of your tree.

For mid-Coast residents from Montara to Miramar, Recology of the Coast gives you more than a month to recycle your tree so there's no rush to end the Christmas spirit any time soon.

When you're ready, Christmas trees will be collected at the curb/street on your regular green waste collection day from Dec. 26- Jan. 31 and should be cut to 4 feet of less in length. Your green waste container(s) are collected every other week on your regular garbage day.

Those trees not picked up during the month should be cut up and put into your green waste container. Remember to remove all ornaments, tinsel, lights and stands. Flocked trees are OK.

If your service day falls on Christmas Day and New Year's Day, then your garbage, recycle and green waste will be collected on the following Saturdays: Dec. 28 and Jan. 4. 

You will be allowed one extra bag of garbage on these Saturdays at no charge.

If you have any questions, call 650-355-9000.

For Half Moon Bay residents, Allied Waste Services will pick up any size tree at the curbside on your regular yard waste or compost service day from Dec. 26-Jan. 31. After Jan. 31, all trees need to be cut to 4 feet and put in the yard waste bin. Remove stands, lights, tinsel, ornaments and other decorations.

No flocked trees will be recycled. Place with regular trash on garbage collection day. 

Ox Mountain Landfill will accept flocked trees for other uses. 

Multi-family residents must call customer service to arrange a location on site for tree pick up.

Call 650-592-2411 for more information.
