The following are tips for preparing your tree for recycling:
1. Remove all non-organic materials such as lights, wire, tinsel, ornaments, nails, tree stands and any other materials that are not part of the tree.
2. Flocked (sprayed with artificial snow) trees cannot be recycled.
3. Trees more than 5 feet tall should be cut in half.
