Recycle your holiday tree for free

Recycle your holiday tree for free

Give your holiday tree a proper send-off; rather than tossing it in the trash, recycle it! You’ll be doing our local landfills a favor.

Sacramento County Waste Management Recycling and SMUD are partnering again this year to offer free holiday tree recycling, including flocked trees, for residents and businesses of Sacramento County. Please remove all tinsel, lights, tree stands and nails prior to bringing them in.

Volunteers of America Northern California & Northern Nevada (VOA), is “helping America’s most vulnerable” rebuild their lives and reach their full potential. Among these vulnerable individuals are veterans who are experiencing a difficult time transitioning from military to civilian life. From assisting in employment opportunities, to providing stable housing, VOA continues their search for veterans who are homeless or soon-to-be homeless and is need of support in Sacramento, Yolo, El Dorado, and Placer counties.

A large number of men and women who have served our country are currently living on the streets. In most cases, these homeless veterans are unaware that organizations such as VOA provide services specifically designed for those in their current situation.
