After Christmas-recycling packaging and the tree



North County Times: MAKE CHRISTMAS A LITTLE LESS WASTEFUL BY RECYCLING

Holiday trees, wreaths, garlands and cut flowers can also be recycled. While some botanical decorations can simply be placed in your designated green waste cans, trees need a little extra attention.
First, remember to remove all lights, ornaments, tinsel and, yes, the tree stand.
Then cut the trees in half and trim off the branches. The tree sections can then be placed in your green waste recycling cans or left curbside on the next collection day, depending on your city's specific rules. Generally, flocked trees cannot be recycled, so they will have to go into the trash or be dropped off at a tree recycling center.

  1. Great idea to recycle the trees but why in the world doesn't Leucadia/Encinitas have any place to recycle paint, car oil, etc...!!!

  3. There is a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Center in Vista for Encinitas residents (as well as Solana Beach, Del Mar, Carlsbad, and San Marcos residents).

    More than likely Encinitas does not have its own site because it is so small.

    A number of auto repair shops in Encinitas accept used oil.
