Curbside - The curbside pickup service runs for two weeks only, January 1-14. Put your tree out on your regular collection day. Do not place tree against carts. Trees must be six feet in length or less - so please cut your tree to size. 


Yard Waste Cart - Trim branches down so the tree fits into cart with with the lid closed, and so it will easily slide out when the cart is serviced.


Drop-off - Take your tree to the Yard Waste area at the Resource Recovery Facility at no charge through the month of January only. The facility is at 605 Dimeo Lane, three miles north of Santa Cruz up Highway 1.
