As we near the end of the holiday season, you may find yourself wondering about the best way to dispose of your holiday tree. It is important to remove your tree from your home before it becomes too dry as dry trees are much more likely to cause house fires.

Follow these simple steps to safely and easily dispose of your tree:

Remove all trimmings – Before you dispose of your tree, it is imperative to remove all decorations including lights, ornaments, tinsel or any other trimmings. Returning it to its natural elements is of utmost importance when disposing of your tree.

Cover the tree – Use a large plastic tree bag. This will help contain any needles or sap from falling from the tree as they can damage your hardwood floors and carpet. If any needles have dropped on your hardwood floor, carefully remove them with a broom so they do not clog vacuum cleaners.

Check with waste management – Many local waste management companies provide curbside pickup for trees. If you find that your waste management company offers this service, bring your tree to the curb outside your home, making sure not to obstruct any roads, sidewalks or driveways. You may also want to confirm they have no additional instructions. To locate the closest waste management company to you, click here.

Recycle your tree – If your local waste management company does not provide curbside pickup, there is likely a nearby recycling center where you can bring your tree. Many of these centers will chip and shred your tree for use as mulch or as part of erosion programs providing environmental benefit.
