Christmas is over and it’s time to take down the tree. If you live in the city of Fresno, here are a few simple steps for how to recycle your real tree.
Remove all ornaments, lights & tinsel. Remove the stand. Cut trees into 3-foot lengths or less and place them in your green waste cart.
If you live in an apartment or are a commercial customer, the city has special rules. If you live north of Ashlan Avenue, contact Allied Waste Services of Fresno, 559-275-1551. Customers south of Ashlan should contact Mid Valley Disposal, 559-237-9425.
For any other questions, you can call the Solid Waste Management Division at 559-621-1452.
The direction is roughly the same in Clovis, but the city does allow for trees to be placed separately for curbside pickup – but that won’t happen until the first two weeks of January.
And the city of Madera offers curbside pickup on customers’ regular garbage day next week.
