Sacramento Christmas tree recycling for this holiday season...

It's that time of year -- the de-holiday-ification of your home is probably either underway already or planned to be underway soon...and with that, many of us need to dispose of that dried out old Christmas tree that's been sitting cheerfully in the front window. Depending on where you live, you may be able to leave your tree on the curb for pick-up or take it somewhere for mulching...

Within the City of Sacramento limits, you can leave your tree out for curb-side removal as a part of the regular seasonal leaf pick-up until January 31, 2015. The cost is included in the fees residents already pay.

Within the unicorporated Sacramento County areas (like Arden, Carmichael, Fair Oaks, Orangevale, etc), you can take your tree to the Sacramento Recycling and Transfer Station at 8491 Fruitridge Road between 8am - 5pm, Monday - Saturday. There is no cost for this service.

Within the City of West Sacramento limits, you can take your tree to the Yolo County Landfill at 44090 County Road 28H between 8:30am - 4pm, Monday - Saturday, or 9am - 5pm on Sundays. There is no cost for this service.

Within the City of Citrus Heights limits, you can set tree at curb side (next to your trash can) on your regular trash collection day from December 26, 2013, through January 17, 2014.

Within the City of Folsom, they will hold the annual Christmas Tree Recycling Drop-off Event on Saturday, January 3rd and Sunday, January 4th, 2015.  Trees will be accepted at Rodeo Park located at the end of Stafford Street. Both dates are from 9am to 3pm.

Within the City of Rancho Cordova, they offer curbside pickup of natural trees set next to trash can on regular collection days, Friday January 2nd through Friday January 9th or cut to fit in green waste carts for regular green-waste collection days.

Within the City of Elk Grove, leave your Christmas tree on the curb next to your grey green waste container by 6am on your collection day until January 23rd, 2015. If your tree is longer than six feet, they request that you cut it into 3-foot or shorter pieces.
