How do I recycle my Christmas tree in San Francisco?

Please place clean, unflocked trees next to your bins on your regular service day from January 2 through January 15, 2017. Be sure to remove all tinsel, decorations, plastic bags, stands, and lights. If your tree measures more than 6 feet tall, please cut it in half.
