It served you well through these past few holiday weeks, but now it’s time to remove that growing fire hazard – also known as the Christmas tree – from your house.
Fortunately, Waste Management is making it easy for you.
Subscribers of normal service will receive free pickup of trees on normal service days between Jan. 6-17. There will be a charge for non yard-waste customers.
The trees must be unflocked, have the decorations removed and cut into 4-foot lengths and widths or less, then placed in the yard waste bin or next to it.
Also, trees cut into 4-foor lengths/widths can be taken to the University Road Transfer Station, 2405 N. University Road, for a fee. Hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays.
Also, members of Spokane Valley Boy Scout Troop 400 will be on hand at Central Valley and University high schools Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. collecting whole trees for $5 each.
The Scouts will also pick your tree up for $10 on those days for those living in the Valley area. A request form can be found at troop400.net/trees.
