Many Clark County households are wrapping up the holiday season and getting ready to recycle natural Christmas trees.

Residents in most parts of the county can set out cut trees, no taller than 5 feet, in or next to their yard debris cart for their next yard debris collection day. Customers who exceed their 96-gallon limit will be charged a one-time fee of $2.67 to $3.25.

All lights, tinsel, ornaments and human-made materials must be removed from Christmas trees before they are set out. Flocked and artificial trees cannot be recycled.

Natural Christmas trees also can be recycled at Triangle Resources, 612 S.E. Union St., Camas, 834-7253 for $2 per tree, and the Washougal Transfer Station, 4020 S. Grant St., 835-2500, for $1 per tree.
