Christmas tree disposal in Palm Beach County got you stumped?

PALM BEACH COUNTY — Just as with any other yard waste, unincorporated Palm Beach County residents can place their live Christmas tree curbside on the regular yard waste collection day. As a general rule, Christmas trees up to 8 feet long and weighing no more than 50 pounds can be placed at the curb whole. Trees larger than 8 feet long should be cut in half. Remember to remove all decorations, lights and tinsel before placing your Christmas tree at the curb.

The collected Christmas trees are treated like any other vegetative waste.

Unincorporated residents who live in a multi-family community with dumpster service should contact their home owner’s association or property management company directly for disposal procedures.

Single family home residents who live in one of Palm Beach County’s 38 municipalities should contact their municipality directly for its Christmas tree collection procedures. A list of municipal contacts<http://www.swa.org/222/Municipal-Service-List> can be found online.
