If you are ready to say goodbye to your Christmas tree, Marin Sanitary Service makes it easy to recycle. During the month of January, just include your tree with your regular curbside yard waste pickup in the green bin. If your tree is over 6 feet tall, please cut it in half. And don't forget to remove all ornaments and tree stands.
Unfortunately, flocked trees are not recycled and will be disposed of with the garbage (please avoid this next year!).
You may also bring up to two trees to Marin Resource Recovery Center at 565 Jacoby Street in San Rafael free of charge during the month of January. (This may be a good alternative if you have a tall tree that you do not want to cut in half). Flocked trees will be accepted for a fee.
Please note that if your regular scheduled pickup is Tuesday through Friday, your pickup will be delayed by one day for New Year's week (and, yes, for those normally scheduled for Friday, there will be Saturday pickup).
Sustainable Fairfax hopes everyone is having a fun and rejuvenating holiday season. We are excited about our developing plans for 2013 and look forward to continuing down the Road towards Zero Waste.
