How to Recycle Your Holiday Tree

Residents can put their trees out on their regular collection day.


Patch Staff

West Valley Collection and Recycling, the recycling, green waste and garbage hauler for Saratoga, Monte Sereno, Los Gatos, and Campbell, is collecting up to two holiday trees per residence through Jan. 13 as part of its regular yard waste gathering.

Both December 25th 2012 and January 1st 2013 fall on Tuesday. During these weeks, if your regular collection day is Tuesday collection will occur on Wednesday. Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday collection will also occur one day later.

Residents are asked to:

  • Dispose of undecorated natural or flocked holiday trees.
  • Remove stands, tinsel and decorations. 
  • Cut trees into 5-foot or preferably shorter lengths. 
  • Place the tree at least one foot away from WVC&R carts.

Apartment residents should contact their property manager for collection details.
