The holidays are over now, and I hope yours was delightful and relaxing! But now we face a gruesome reality…the rotting corpse in our living room! It’s likelihood to burn your entire house down and put you unpleasantly on the news increasing day by day. I am, of course, talking about that real christmas tree (likely home to gross bugs! *drama*) that stopped being cute about 2 hours ago.
It’s time to think about where you’ll recycle your Christmas tree. Thankfully – SMUD, Sacramento County, and the Cities of Sacramento and Folsom have teamed up to host tree recycling events all over!
