As long as the lights and tinsel are stripped off of your tree, you can recycle it.  Here's how.

The City of Boise says all you have to do is set your evergreen tree out by the curb this week on your regular trash collection day and crews will pick it up.

The tree has to be free of decorations, and of course, out of its tree stand.  Trees also have to be cut to 4 feet or shorter and weigh less than 60 pounds.  Click HERE for all the info.

While you're dragging your evergreen tree to the street, the rest of us will be boxing up our fake trees and hauling them to the attic.  No matter which you have, this is the least fun part of Christmas!  It was so much more exciting to put up the tree.  But it looked good while it lasted.

By the way, you have until January 8th to recycle your tree with the City of Boise.  And hopefully the fake trees are down by Valentine's Day.
