Trashing The Tree

Sponsored by:

The holidays are over. Time to take down all those decorations, but what do you do with all those wrappings? Both Tuolumne and Calaveras Counties offer locations to discard your Christmas trash. When it comes to your tree, just make sure you take off all the tinsel, decorations and tree stands.

In Tuolumne County trees can be dropped off at the Earth Facility on Camage Avenue in Sonora the entire month of January. Click here for a map. They also offer curbside pick up for the elderly until January 11th. Just call the Waste Management office at 209-532-1413 to schedule a pick up.
