Recycling Your Christmas Tree

by Mike Yeo on December 29, 2012

It’s time to take down the Christmas ornaments, lighting and trimming on the tree. This week, the week after Christmas is a great time to start putting the house back to “normal” again. Trash services will be delayed one day.

If you have a real tree, participate in Frisco TX’s tree recycling program. Remove any ornaments or lights.  Trees will need to be no taller than 5 feet. If the tree is more than 5 feet, cut the tree into smaller section no longer than 5-foot and leave it at least 3 feet away from trash and recycling bins on the curb during Trash Day. Flocked Christmas tree will not be picked up. Flocked trees may be picked up by C.W.D for a $10 fee if you call ahead (972) 392-9200.

The Christmas trees will be composted, not land-filled. You can also bring your trees to the Custer Transfer Station (off Custer and Ridgeview on 9901 Custer Road, Plano TX). For hours of operation, call Custer Transfer Station (972) 727-6341 directly.
