You can chop it up and put it in your green waste recycling bin.
Or you can take it to one of several tree recycling sites
throughout Sacramento on Saturday.
Chris Andis is with the County's Waste Management and Recycling
Department. She says if you bring your tree to a recycling
location, their staff will turn it into something else.
"They have a big giant chopper and they push the trees in there
and they ground it all up into mulch and then that is used for
ground cover and various environmental uses. The key point here is
that they stay out of the landfill."
All trees must be free of stands, nails, ornaments, lights and
tinsel. Flocked trees will be accepted…and there's a limit of five
trees per carload.
