Following Christmas and New Year’s Day celebrations, Republic Services asks residents to recycle their Christmas trees.
Trees are processed at Republic’s Pacific Region Compost facility, where they are chipped and used as a nutrient-rich soil amendment. Only unflocked trees can be recycled. Trees must be bare and clean of all ornaments, lights, and decorations.
Trees under 8 feet tall can be placed at the curb. Customers are asked to not place trees curbside any earlier than the night before pickup.
In Philomath, Christmas tree pickups will be picked up Jan. 5 and Jan. 11.
