How And When To Throw Away Your Tree

No bagging! Time for my annual harangue. In all fairness, the message may be getting out; this is an old photograph. The City has issued this notification:

The City of Providence announced Wednesday that free, curbside pick-up of Christmas trees will take place from Monday, January 7 through Friday, January 25 on regularly scheduled trash pickup days. All trees collected by the City will be delivered to the Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation and recycled into compost.

Any Providence resident wishing to take advantage of this free service must place their tree at their curb on the day of the week that trash and recycling pick-up is normally provided in their neighborhood. Trees must be free of all contaminants, such as garland, tinsel, lights, ornaments and should not be placed in a bag.

Emphasis mine.
