Apple Valley, CA – December 20, 2019: Once the presents are unwrapped and the needles start to drop, it’s time to give your Christmas tree a proper retirement.
You don’t have to haul it off to a local drop-off point or dump it in the desert. Apple Valley residents can simply put their tree by the curb and AVCO Disposal will pick up Christmas trees until January 11 on regular trash service days.
There are three simple steps to take:
- Remove all decorations, tinsel and stands
- Cut the tree in half if over 6-feet tall
- Place it curbside on your regular trash service day
The clean trees will be collected for grinding and composting. This practice conserves landfill space and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Please note that flocked trees cannot be composted. Residents must schedule a bulky item pickup for flocked trees. Questions may be directed to AVCO Disposal at (760) 245-8607.
