CHRISTMAS TREE RECYCLING

 

The Department of Environmental Services (ENV) reminds residents to recycle their fresh Christmas trees after the holidays.

Households with City collection should place bare trees without flocking, ornaments and tinsel curbside as part of your normal green waste pickup.

The City provides curbside green waste collection to more than 160,000 homes on Oahu.  Some areas use a cart system, while others place it in bags or bundles.

Those areas that use carts, trim and cut trees so it fits inside with the lid closed.  For curbside, cut trees to three-foot lengths and securely tie in bundles.  For residents that use the bag system, cut and trim trees to fit in a bag and place curbside on your normal green waste collection day.

For condo residents, trees may be dropped off at any refuse convenience center or directly to the composting facility there is no tip fee charged for Christmas trees over the holidays, courtesy of the City.
