Recycling a Christmas tree: three choices


There are three ways for West Sacramento residents to recycle their used, formerly-live Christmas trees. Choose from among the following options after removing all decorations from the tree:

First, you may cut it into small enough (less than three-foot) sections and fit the pieces into your yard waste cart or bundled next to it, for pickup on your regular service day.

Secondly, you may take the tree to Whitey’s Jolly Kone between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Sat., Jan. 4. If you make a donation at the dropoff, it will benefit Cub Scout Pack 49. Whitey’s is located at 1300 Jefferson Boulevard.

Third, you may recycle your Christmas tree (limit two per person) to the Yolo County Landfill between Woodland and Davis. The landfill will also recycle your old electronics, such as computers, TVs and monitors now made obsolete by your new holiday gifts.   For more information, call (530) 666-8729 or visit
