Christmas tree recycling to begin first week of January 

San Francisco residents can start recycling their Christmas trees beginning the first week of January.

Trees will be picked up curbside from Jan. 3 through Jan. 7 and again the following week, from Jan. 10 through Jan. 14.

The trees should be removed of all decorations and placed next to the trash cart before 6 a.m. on the regularly scheduled pickup day.

From there, the trees will be taken to recycling center Recology San Francisco, where they will be chipped. The wood chips will then be sent to Tracy, where they will serve as biomass in a waste-to-energy facility.

Residents can also drop off their trees at Haight-Ashbury Neighborhood Council, located at 780 Frederick St. until Jan. 17, or at Recology Golden Gate, at 900 7th St., or at Recology San Francisco at 501 Tunnel Ave., until Jan. 15.

A tree chipping celebration will kick off post-holiday “treecycling” services at 11 a.m. Monday at Civic Center Plaza in front of City Hall.

For more information, call Recology Sunset Scavenger at (415) 330-1300 or Recology Gate at (415) 626-4000.
