If you currently have curbside green waste, you can clear trees of all lights, ornaments, tinsel, and flocking then cut the tree into several smaller pieces so it will fit in the green cart.
There are three other drop off locations, available for one day only on Saturday January 4, for people who do not have service or do not want to cut up the tree. those locationa are at the Lake Wildwood and Lake of the Pines Water Treatment plants and the Alta Sierra fire Department.
