The City of San Marcos is offering several ways to discard live Christmas trees:
- Christmas tree drop off: Dec. 26, 2019 through Jan. 10, 2020 at 401 E. Hopkins (Grant Harris parking lot). Trees of all sizes with no ornaments or tinsel will be mulched on site. Mulch will be available to residents free of charge.
- Curbside Christmas tree service: Now through January. Trees up to four feet in height can be bundled with twine (no wire) and set out on residents’ regular green waste pickup day.
- Green waste cart: Trees may be cut up and placed in green waste carts for pick up. Alternatively, residents may place them in paper yard bags placed next to green waste carts for pickup.
- Brush drop off: Jan. 11, 2020, 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. The brush drop off can be reached by taking the San Marcos Animal Shelter entrance at 750 River Road and following the signs.
