            Folsom’s annual Christmas tree recycling event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 5 & 6 at Rodeo Park at the end of Stafford Street behind the Folsom Public Library.

            Trees should be stripped of all decorations and lights.  Local Boy Scouts will help unload trees at the event, and will also collect trees throughout the city as part of their annual fundraising activities.

            Small trees may be cut and placed in green waste cans, as long as the lid closes completely.

            Holiday packaging material, including wrapping paper, tissue, cardboard boxes and cards, may be placed in blue recycling cans.  Note that foil-type paper and Styrofoam are not recyclable. Recycle lights by placing in plastic bags and taking to one of the City’s recycling drop-off locations listed on the City’s website –

            City crews collect garbage, green waste and recycling on all holidays, including Christmas and New Years Day.  Place your cans curbside on your normal collection day.
