Christmas Trees

We always get our Christmas tree, the weekend after Halloween (ooops Thanksgiving), usually on Friday. We generally take it down right after Christmas. This time we had it down on Dec 26.

So that means it is time to recycle the Christmas tree.
It used to be that that City had a crew at the K-Mart shopping plaza at Bird and Florida. Last year, or maybe the year before, the moved the crew to the Sulphur Springs Tower.

What are my choices?
Per the City website:

"December 27, 2006 - Residents may take trees to the Manhattan Brush Site or to the McKay Bay Transfer Station for recycling. Residents with separate, curbside collection of yard waste may place trees at the curb with yard waste for recycling. Residents also have the option of taking trees to the University of South Florida's Recycling Center located off of North 50th on Sycamore Drive on either 12/30/06 or 1/6/07 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Directions to USF's Recycling Center: From North 50th, make a left on Elm Drive and then a right on Sycamore Drive."

Hmm those of us in SE Sem Hts do not yet have yard waste recycling so that cuts out one option.

I thought I'd check the County's website to see what they are doing but forget that. No mention anywhere.

I guess on Saturday I will trek up to USF.

I cannot speak for all of OSH, but those of us living North of Hillsborough in Hampton Terrace have yard waste collected on Mondays. If you know someone up in my neck of the woods you might get them to loan you a spot at their curb.

I think the McKay Bay Transfer station is closer to and easier to get to from SH than USF. At least for most of us.

Torgo, "Hampton Terrace" is the neighborhood around Lake Roberta and shares the corner of Nebraska and Hillsborough Blvd with SESH. Hampton Terrace is part of Old Seminole Heights. You were thinking of Temple Terrace, maybe? :-)

No Torgo is correct. McKay Bay transfer station is closer and easier to SH, OSH, and Hampton than is USF. Check the location of McKay Bay Transfer Station.
