Residents may recycle Christmas trees with their green waste

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 02:01 a.m. HST, Dec 25, 2012

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.
