Treecycle that Christmas tree

Now that Christmas is over, you may be ready to get rid of your tree.

If you subscribe to curbside food and yard waste collection you can put your tree out between now and January 10th for no extra charge. Seattle Public Utilities website, At Your Service, states that, “Trees should be cut into sections of six feet long or shorter, with branches trimmed to less than four feet to fit into the collection trucks. Sections should be bundled with string or twine.” Flocked trees or trees with tinsel will be picked up as an extra unit of garbage, which costs $7.60. You can also drop your tree off at the Recycling and Disposal Station at N. 34th St and Carr Place N. (Photo of Geeky Swedes Christmas tree – crooked topper and all.)

  1. Are there any resources for finding space to re-plant those little live trees? I have one this year and have no place to plant it.

  2. Somebody on the Phinneywood site actually had a suggestion. Going on the Freeattle site to find a home for it.

  3. Before Christmas, Swansons was selling little live trees that you could later donate to Carkeek park. I didn't buy one, so don't have the details, but maybe a call to Swanson's would do the trick?

  4. I didn't know there was really a Christmas tree behind all Kai's toys – and a pretty one too!

  5. Or, you can be like my apartment neighbors and just leave it on the sidewalk! Someone else will take care of it for you!

  6. We put our poor dried out tree last night, but they did not pick it up today. Oh, well. Now we have to either look at it for another week on our parking strip or cut it up and put it in our yard waste bin.

  7. Excellently written article, if only all bloggers offered the same content as you, the internet would be a much better place. Please keep it up! Cheers.
