SF To Begin Curbside Pickup Of Christmas Trees In January

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – City officials reminded residents Saturday that the roadside Christmas tree pickup in San Francisco will take place in early January.

In the past year, the city cut more than 500 tons of Christmas trees in mulch.

“Not only does this ensure that discarded Christmas trees are used as environmentally friendly mulch, but proper disposal also helps keep our neighborhoods clean and safe and reduces the risk of fire,” said Alaric Degrafinried, Acting Director of Public Works.

After tinsel, decorations, nails, plastic bags, stands, and lights have been removed from the trees, residents can place them next to blue wastebaskets the night before their scheduled pick-up day, between January 4th and 15th.

Any tree that is more than 6 feet tall should be cut in half. Trees should not be put in plastic bags.
The trees are felled in San Francisco and processed into mulch in a Recology composting facility.
