Recycle your holiday tree

LANCASTER – Waste Management will provide free Holiday Tree Recycling services for City of Lancaster residents from today until Jan. 13, 2012.

Citizens residing in a single-family dwelling may simply place their undecorated tree at the curbside on their regular trash collection day. A separate truck will collect holiday trees, so please do not place the tree in front of the regular refuse/recyclable carts. In addition, all tinsel, ornaments, stands, and nails must be removed from the tree.

Those living in a multi-family residence can call Waste Management to arrange for their Christmas tree to be picked up and recycled, or drop it off at a local Waste Management collection site. For more information, you may contact Waste Management at 661-947-7197.
