The town will collect Christmas trees for residents inside town limits on Jan. 8 through 12 on your scheduled weekly garbage day. Trees should be placed at the curb no later than 9 a.m. and should be separate from other unbundled trash and woody waste.

To ensure the success of the tree recycling program, remove all tinsel, stands, lights, and ornaments, as these items can contaminate mulch and compost. Any tree in over 8 feet tall will have to be cut in half. Plastic tree bags should not be used for tree recycling, and artificial or flocked (painted) trees will not be accepted.

If you have any questions, contact the Town of Friday Harbor staff at 360-378-2810.
