Reminder: City will pick up Christmas trees

Beginning today through the month of January, the City of Seattle will pick up and compost your Christmas trees and wreaths for no additional charge. Just place them on the curb on your usual yard waste collection day.

Don’t forget to remove all decorations, chop the tree into 4-feet lengths (or shorter) and bundle each section with sisal string or twine (not plastic.) Any flocked or plastic trees or wreaths will be charged as extra garbage. All the details are here.

If you’d rather haul the tree to a transfer station, your drop-off will be free until Jan. 31st.
