COLUMBUS, Ohio — As the holidays begin to wrap up, some central Ohioans may be wondering what to do with the Christmas tree still sitting in their living room.
According to the Columbus Department of Public Health, Rumpke Waste and Recycling will pick up holiday trees free of charge during regularly scheduled yard waste days.
Participating Columbus residents must place their tree curbside by no later than 6 a.m. on their scheduled pickup day, the department said in a social media post.
City officials ask that residents remove all lights, ornaments and other decorations from the tree prior to pickup.
Trees 8 feet or taller must be cut in half, according to the city. Trees placed in plastic bags will not be collected.
