With Christmas behind us and the holiday season drawing to a close, you may wonder how to properly dispose of your fresh-cut tree.
If you have weekly residential garbage service, you can place your tree curbside the night before your regularly scheduled pick-up day.
Those in Cloverdale, Healdsburg, Petaluma or Santa Rosa, that’s the week of December 27.
In Cotati, Rohnert Park and unincorporated Sonoma County, that’s on the week of January 3.
Trees over six feet should be cut in half.
If your tree will fit, you can also cut it up and put it in your compost or yard waste bin for collection.
There are also a variety of tree drop-off locations around the county and in many cities (see photo).
