Never fear if you can’t make it to one of these chipping sites on January 7-8. You can drop off your tree at one of these drop-off locations from January 2-8.
And finally, if you can’t make it to one of these locations, leave your tree curbside starting January 3 through January 8. Don’t put the tree in a plastic bag, and remember to remove all tree stands, tinsel, lights, and ornaments from trees before placing them out for collection.
For all you non-New Yorkers out there, check with your locals Parks or Sanitation departments. I found similar programs from Portland, Oregon, to Atlanta, Georgia, and everywhere in between.
Happy New Year and see you back here in 2012!
