It’s not complicated. Just place it at the curb, like any other landscape trash, on the scheduled pickup day, the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County says.
The authority said that’s for people living outside municipalities; if you live in a city or town, check with its officials for their procedures. If you live in a multi-home community with dumpster service, contact your homeowners association or property management company directly
As a general rule, the authority said, trees can be up to eight feet long — if yours is longer, cut it in half — and weigh no more than 50 pounds. Remember to remove all decorations, lights and tinsel.
The authority said collected Christmas trees are burned in its giant waste-to-energy plants, although some are mulched and used on authority properties.
