A statement from the City of Richmond:
Residents have several options to properly dispose of holiday trees this January.
1) If you’ve not already used your allocated On-Call Curbside Clean-up(s), call RSS Customer Service to arrange for no cost curbside pick-up at (510) 262-7100. Unscheduled pickups outside will be charged $15.48 by RSS.
2) On any of your regular green waste collection days, cut your unflocked, natural tree to fit in your yard waste cart. Trees must be 6” or less in diameter and cut to 3’ in length. Cut off top and remove stand and all decorations. Artificial trees should be put into the trash bin.
3) With proof of residency (driver’s license or CA ID), RSS customers can take Christmas Trees to Golden Bear Transfer (1 Parr Blvd, Richmond M-F, 7am-5pm; Sat-Sun, 9am-5pm) thru the 1st weekend in February at no cost for compostable trees; $8.50 disposal fee for non-compostable.
