Recology Makes it Easy to Compost Your Holiday Tree
Recology San Mateo County will collect holiday trees for free for composting between Dec. 26, 2019 and Jan. 31, 2020 on your regular compost collection day. For proper tree collection please follow these easy steps:
- Remove all decorations and tree stands (flocked trees are accepted).
- Place tree next to your green Compost Cart (or place inside with trunk sticking out).
- Trees larger than 8 feet will need to be cut in half in order to be collected.
If you have an oversized tree, please contact Recology for a special collection at no charge. After Jan. 31, 2020, please cut the tree to fit inside your Compost Cart.
For Apartment Managers, please call to arrange for collection of holiday trees. Trees can be collected in piles or in a drop box for no additional charge. For more information, please call Recology San Mateo County at 650-595-3900. Visit Recology’s website for more information.
