What to do with your old Christmas tree

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - You may already be thinking about getting rid of your Christmas tree but instead of trashing it, recycle it.

Every year you can find Christmas trees sitting on the side of the road, weeks after Christmas. Instead of leaving it out use your green waste bin for pickup.

You will need to cut the tree down so it fits inside that bin with the lid closed. Or you can cut it down into three-foot sections and bag it up for pickup.

You can drop off whole trees at any city convenience center. Keep in mind you need to remove all decorations including stray ornaments, tinsel and even flocking.
