With the holidays done and the needles probably starting to collect on the carpet, the city of Shoreline is offering free tree-cycling this weekend. Here are the details from King County's website.
When: Saturday, Jan. 05, 9 a.m.-3 p.m.; Sunday, Jan. 6, noon-3 p.m.
Where: 17077 Meridian Ave. N., Meridian Park School parking lot, Shoreline.
Details: The city of Shoreline is hosting its annual Christmas Tree Recycling Event to help Shoreline residents recycle their holiday trees.
Please remove all hooks, ornaments, tinsel and tree stands. Please do not bring flocked, artificial or garden trees, branches, wreaths, or swags.
Trees will be recycled by CleanScapes, but they won’t be chipped on-site at the event.
If there is snow or ice on the road that weekend, call (206) 801-2450 on the day of the event for a recorded message on the event status.
If the event is canceled or you cannot make it to the event, other options for disposal of holiday trees in Shoreline include:
•CleanScapes yard debris customers: free curbside collection of your tree. Cut your tree in half if it is taller than 4 feet, and place it next to your yard debris container at the curb for collection at no cost. No flocked, tinseled or artificial trees are accepted; and trees without a yard debris cart next to them will not be collected.
•Flocked, tinseled or artificial trees: free curbside collection for CleanScapes garbage customers. Cut tree to fit inside your garbage cart. If the tree is taller than 4 feet, cut in half and put next to your garbage cart for a collection cost of $3.92.
•Recycle your tree for a fee at the Shoreline Recycling and Transfer Station at 2300 N 165th St.
