Let SMUD Help You Dispose of Your Christmas Tree

SACRAMENTO – Give your Christmas tree the proper holiday send-off. Rather than toss it in the trash, recycle it. You’ll be doing the local landfills a big favor.

Bring your Christmas tree to the SMUD Corporation Yard at 6100 Folsom Boulevard on Jan. 4 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. SMUD will mulch it for free.
