Victorville Residents: Christmas Curbside Tree Collection Available through January 7th, 2011.

Staff Reports
(Victorville) — Good news! Your Christmas tree can now be put out for curbside collection!
 Remove wooden or metal stands, wire, nails, and any other objects from natural trees before putting at the curb. The “live” trees are going to be chipped and used for mulch. Wooden stands, decorations, and/or any metal objects create hazards when run through chipping machine, so please make sure your tree is clean!
 Put the tree at the curb (not in the can) on your pick up day. DO NOT put your tree in the trash or recycle can.
 Note: Natural, un-flocked trees will be collected by a separate truck that may stop by your house earlier or later than the trash or recycle trucks. Be sure to have your tree at the curb by 6 a.m.
NOTE: This program is for residential customers on cart service only. No businesses or bin customers.
WHAT?
 Natural, un-flocked trees—remove all decorations, stands, etc. These trees will be collected separately
from trash and will then be turned into mulch.
 Flocked or artificial trees will also be accepted, but they will be collected as trash.
HOW?
 Do not put trees in plastic bags.
 Trees over 6 feet tall must be cut in half.
WHEN?
 Put your tree out on your service day. Trees will be collected during the weeks of December 27th and
January 3rd on your normal pick up day.
