Beginning on Monday, January 8, 2018, the City of Coral Gables is offering free Christmas tree recycling collection to Coral Gables residents living in single-family homes. Recycling your tree helps to preserve landfill space, and provides the opportunity to repurpose this valuable resource as mulch and ground cover in natural parks and planting areas throughout the community. Please observe the following placement requirements:
• Place the tree out on the curbside after 5:00 P.M. the day before your scheduled tree collection day specified by area.
• Keep tree separate from your trash/yard waste pile if you want it recycled. If the tree is placed in the trash pile with other debris, it won’t be recycled.
• Remove tree stand, lights, ornaments, tinsel and other decorations before placing out for collection.
• Do not bag your tree or place flocked trees out for collection.
