Christmas is over, you’ve unwrapped all the presents and eaten way too much good food. So what do you do with that Christmas tree sitting in your living room?
San Francisco residents can start recycling their Christmas trees, but will have to wait for the first week in January to do so.
Trees will be picked up curbside from January 3-7 and again the following week, from January 10-14.
Officials are asking residents to remove all decorations from the trees and to place them next to the trash cart before 6 a.m. on regularly scheduled pickup days.
From there, the trees will be taken to the recycling center Recology San Francisco, where they will be chipped.
Residents can also drop off their trees at the Haight-Ashbury Neighborhood Council, which is located at 780 Frederick Street until January 17.
The Recology Golden Gate facility at 900 7th Street and Recology San Francisco at 501 Tunnel Avenue will also be accepting dropoffs until January 15.
