The holidays are over and it’s time to take down the decorations. You’ve put away the ornaments, but what about the Christmas tree? There are several disposal options available to Roseville residents.
• You can’t put the tree in your regular trash, but you can arrange a special pick up with your trash hauler. Check to make sure they will take it to a compost site. • On January 10 or 11, take your tree to the FREE Ramsey County Yard Waste Site at 1943 Pierce Butler Route or 1150 Sims Ave. in St. Paul. Hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday. Wreaths or items that have wire are not accepted. • Take it to the SKB Environmental disposal site at 630 Malcolm Ave. in Minneapolis (just off 280 and University Ave.) 612-331-4610. They're open during the week, and it costs $2.00 per tree.• Rent a chipper from a home improvement store. Mulch your tree and use it in your garden or share the mulch with a fellow gardener.• Natural Christmas trees and wreaths make a great winter shelter for birds and animals in your yard. In the spring, dispose of them at a Ramsey County Yard Waste Site for free.
