Oahu residents may recycle their Christmas trees and holiday wreaths in their green waste carts, leave them curbside if they are on a manual collection route, or drop them off at a refuse convenience center.
All trees must be bare of flocking, ornaments and tinsel.
Residents with a green waste cart should cut the tree so it fits inside with the lid closed.
Residents on a manual collection route should cut the tree into three-foot segments, bundle it and leave curbside on the collection day.
The city operates 10 refuse convenience centers around Oahu. See a list at www.opala.org/solid_waste/Drop_off_Centers_for_Refuse.html.
