For those who choose pine over plastic, December 26 marks the first day of tree-disposal season. If you’re not sure what to do with your post-season tannenbaum, here are a few tips:
-Use curbside pickup. Many communities, including Wayzata (for utility paying Wayzata residents) and Shorewood, offer this service. Keep in mind that there might be a fee, depending on where you live.
-Take your tree to a drop-off recycling center. Minnetonka Public Works offers tree disposal for residents during winter pruning and brush drop-offs in March only. Read more about Christmas Tree Clean Up
