The holiday decorations will soon be coming down, and it will be time to dispose of real Christmas trees. The Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County reminds its customers with curbside service in unincorporated parts of the county about the proper disposal of Christmas trees.
Like with any other yard waste, just place your real Christmas tree curbside on your regular yard waste collection day. As a general rule, Christmas trees up to eight feet long and weighing no more than 50 pounds can be placed at the curb whole. Trees larger than eight feet long should be cut in half. Remember to remove all decorations before placing your Christmas tree at the curb.
Collected Christmas trees are treated like any other vegetative waste.
Residents who live in multi-family communities with dumpster services should contact their property management company directly for disposal procedures. Residents who live in municipalities should contact their municipality directly for Christmas tree collection procedures. More about SWA services is available by calling (561) 697-2700.
