Christmas trees can be dropped-off or left curbside
SACHSE (December 5, 2017) Whatever you call your live, organic Christmas tree, “arbol de Navidad” in Spanish, “Tannenbaum” in German, “albero di Natale” in Italian, or “sapin de Noel” in French, sooner or later it will eventually be called mulch.
Once the holidays are over, it will be time to dispose of the tree.
Sachse’s solid waste contractor, Republic Services, will establish a tree drop-off point at Salmon Park, 4302 Williford Road. On Dec. 26, a waste container will be placed at the park, and remain there until Jan. 9. The container will then be removed, and the trees converted to mulch. The mulch will be available on a first-come, first-serve, self-load basis at a later date. Once determined, the mulch pick up date will be shared on the Sachse website.
Alternatively, residents may choose to place the tree out on the curb on normal trash collection days. Republic Services will pick it up along with the regular trash and recycling.
Trees, whether dropped-off or left curbside, should be completely stripped of all ornaments, tinsel, garland, aluminum icicles, lights, electric cords, strings and other decorations. Trees must also be removed from stands, wooden or metal, and should not be wrapped in plastic or paper.
Flocked trees will not be accepted at the drop off location or picked up curbside.
