Christmas Tree Disposal
Anyone know how to get DPW to pick up your Christmas tree if you don’t have a treebox? The city’s going to start collecting trees this week. DPW’s instructions are to leave the old trees in the treebox in front of your house. I live on a really small street that doesn’t have treeboxes. Two years in a row, I put out my tree in front of my house for pickup during the tree collection week and, each year, it doesn’t get picked up. Regular trash and recycling wouldn’t pick it up either. Is there some magic to this that I’m missing? Is it ok to take the tree to a different street that does have treeboxes and leave it there? I wouldn’t take my trash cans and put them in front of someone else’s house on a different street for pickup, but I feel this is different — if the city won’t actually collect trees from my street, then I should be able to leave my tree on a street that does have collections. Agree? Other ideas? Thanks.
