Christmas tree recycling begins
Scripps Ranch residents may drop off their natural Christmas trees this season at a collection point for recycling at Scripps Ranch Community Park, 11454 Blue Cypress Drive. The drop off area is on the right side, not far from the park entrance.
Each year, the City of San Diego Environmental Services Department hosts its Annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program beginning the day after Christmas, continuing until Jan. 23.
Both green and flocked trees are accepted. All tree stands, bags, netting, lights, ornaments, tinsel and other tree decorations must be removed. No artificial trees are allowed.
