Recycle Christmas Trees Via Curb Service

City refuse officials are reminding residents to recycle their Christmas trees curbside, as part of their normal green-waste pickup.

Trees should be free of flocking, ornaments and tinsel, and should be cut to fit into the green carts (with the lid closed). Residents also can take them to the nearest Refuse Convenience Center, or to the composting facility at Hawaiian Earth Products in Campbell Industrial Park (682-5895). There is no tip fee for holiday trees.

For West Oahu customers, there is the Ewa Refuse Convenience Center at 91-1000 Geiger Road (near the Barbers Point gate), the Waipahu center on Waipahu Depot Road (near the police academy) or the Waimanalo Gulch Landfill.
