If you are wondering what to do with the tree once it is stripped of its lights, ornaments, and tinsel, here is the word from the Department of Public Works. Put your Christmas tree at the curb or in the alley--wherever you put your garbage and your recyclables for pick up--and DPW will take it away. They won't take it with the garbage or the recyclables, but they will pick it up when they get the chance. Get your tree out there soon. The last day for Christmas tree collection is Friday, January 29.
