What do I do with my holiday tree?
EDCO Disposal will pick up your holiday tree on collection day for 2 weeks immediately following Christmas day at individual homes and multi-family units. The stand and all trimmings should be removed, and it is appreciated if trees are cut to lengths of no more than 4 feet and 18 inches in diameter. Place cut trees in designated yard waste recycling container(s), or bundle tree sections together with twine and place on the curb. Residents are required to cut and bundle their trees if they are placed for collection after the 2-week period ends. Look for more details about tree recycling in your EDCO billing statement, or call EDCO Disposal at 858-748-7769.
