After the holiday festivities are over, give your Christmas tree, wreath, and other cut greenery another life as compost and mulch. Simply remove all ornaments, decorations, tinsel, nails, and the tree stand and set the empty tree and greenery at the curb for pickup as a part of yard waste collection by your waste and recycling collection service provider, during the first two full weeks of January.
Or, take the tree and greenery to one of locations listed below to be recycled:
