County residents can also recycle their live holiday tree by cutting it up and placing it in the curbside green waste cart. Remove all decorations, etc.  Please make sure the lid will close.  The cart will be emptied on your regular green waste collection day.  Flocked trees can be cut up and placed in the garbage cart for curbside collection.

Please do not put holiday trees on curbs or roadsides!
