Wondering what to do with your live Christmas tree?
Not sure what to do with your Christmas tree once the holidays are over? Check with your residential refuse hauler for pick up and recycling of your tree.
Haulers have a specific times or limited days that they collect trees from customers. For information, check the last bill you received or call your hauler. There may be a fee for pickup, depending on the company and your level of service.
While the city of Minnetonka doesn't provide a tree pickup service, trees will be accepted at the city's winter pruning and brush drop-off, open all five Saturday in March, 7 a.m.-3 p.m., at Minnetonka Public Works, 11522 Minnetonka Boulevard. Trees should be free of all ornaments, tinsel and lights.
Between now and March, you can put the tree in a snowdrift in your yard as a refuge for birds.
