Christmas tree recycling available in Largo

LARGO

Christmas tree recycling will be available

If your holiday includes a real tree with plenty of presents, the city will offer a free Christmas tree and cardboard box recycling collection through Jan. 7. This service is available only to city garbage collection customers. Decoration-free trees should be placed by the curb on recycling day during the two-week post-holiday collection. Trees should not be wrapped in a plastic bag. Cardboard boxes should be flattened, free from packaging such as foam, plastic wrap or paper, and placed under the curbside recycling bin. Residents who do not receive the city's garbage services should ask their waste collection company about tree recycling. Cardboard boxes will be accepted at two 24-hour recycling centers in Largo at 1550 Starkey Road and at Tri-City Plaza. Trees and brush are not accepted at these locations. For more green holiday tips, visit LargoRecycles.com or call (727) 587-6760.
