I admit it, from time to time, I like to get on my soapbox. Usually, I feel anyway, I have a right to. Today is no different from any other time. That’s because, I spied something in my alley that I knew would only take days to show up…. an abandoned Christmas Tree.
Here’s the thing… if getting a real tree is your thing, I say go for it. I prefer a fake tree but that’s just me. However, if you are going to take the time to get a real Christmas tree…. take the time to recycle it.
The city of San Diego does pick up or recycle Christmas Trees. It just has to be on your regularly scheduled greenery pick up day. For trees over four feet tall they should be cut in half and put into your bin. For those of you who do not have a greenery pickup… these locations are available for you to drop off your tree.
