Give new life to old Christmas trees 

Published on December 23, 2015

When it comes time to un-deck the halls, you can give your old, unflocked, Christmas tree new life by recycling it.  Placer County and its OneBigBin program partners provide several convenient options. Whether recycling your tree curbside in your green waste can, or dropping it off free of charge at one of nine locations, please be sure to remove all ornaments and lights. All trees will be composted. For more information visit:One Big Bin.  

Curbside Option:  Just cut your tree into 4’ long pieces or shorter and place them in your greenwaste can!
