Lynchburg to start Christmas tree collection January 13

Christmas tree with Hanukkah ornament

"A lot of people like to start to take their trees down the next day after Christmas", said Penny Morin, the City of Lubbock Solid Waste Collections Manager. With Christmas already behind us, all of the wonderful Christmas trees that illuminated many households with bright lights and lovely ornaments will go dark and dim as they are stripped of their glamour before being tossed away.

You could cut your Christmas tree up and throw it in the garbage, said Hugh Whaley of the National Christmas Tree Association, but he advises against it. Customers who place more than one section or more than one tree next to the cart will be charged an extra yard debris pickup fee.

In Caldwell, the city's forestry department offers Christmas tree chipping through January 16.

The State Fire Marshal's office is reminding everyone how important it is to dispose of their Christmas trees as soon as possible.

Remove decorations and tree stands before dropping off a tree for recycling.

Santa has come and gone, but the Christmas tree remains.

Christmas weekend shootings continue Chicago's worst year for gun violence in decades
Early Christmas Day, a 21-year-old was found in a home's backyard with a fatal gunshot wound to the head, police said . The number of murders in Chicago this year is on course to top that of Los Angeles and New York City combined.

Non-Anderson residents can contact their local waste removal departments in order to find the best course of action to get rid of an old tree.

"We've been close to a thousand mark, but not quite there", she said.

The city has offered the Christmas tree collection service for as long as Sedlacek has been a municipal employee - more than 30 years - and he's noticed one trend.

The South Transfer Station does not accept trees or holiday lights.

They can also be brought to a drop-off site from Saturday, Dec. 31, through Sunday, Jan. 8, where they can be left to be recycled later.

He said that, as in Salem, town workers collect trees from the curbside in preparation for the event, and later safely stack them within a perimeter on Riverhead Beach before sparking the fire.
