The holidays are upon us and many of our homes are adorned with real, beautiful Christmas trees. They bring joy, and hold years of ornaments and memories… then ultimately leave a path of needles and mess that we want out of the house as soon as the calendar has turned.
Since Mr. Trashman does NOT provide a Christmas tree pickup and disposal service, we wanted to direct you to some ideas of what to do with your tree this year:
- Recycle it!
