If you’re one of those people who got the Christmas tree as soon as the Thanksgiving dinner was cleared from the table, it’s a pretty crispy specimen of a fir by now.
There are a few ways to rid your home of that tree. King County will accept the tree for recycling at the curbside along with your regular yard waste. Trees must be free of flocking, tinsel and ornaments. They must also be cut into pieces less than three feet long and less than four inches at the base. Artificial or fireproofed will not be accepted. Check here for more options on tree recycling.
You may also pay to drop your tree at a private recycling center such as Pacific Topsoils or Cedar Grove. Both charge fees.
