Curbside Christmas tree disposal begins in New York City

NEW YORK (WABC) -- The New York City Department of Sanitation is beginning its annual curbside Christmas tree pick-ups.

People should remove lights, ornaments and other accessories before putting out their trees.

Pickup will continue through January 12.

The city will also accept and chip Christmas trees at the annual mulch-fest events January 12-13.

If you are throwing out an artificial Christmas tree larger than 4 feet, you must schedule a bulk pickup appointment.

Artificial trees 4 feet and smaller can be thrown out with your regular garbage.
