We all love to search for the perfect Christmas tree, decorate it with our favorite ornaments and lights and enjoy its glow in the dark winter mornings and evenings...
then Christmas is over
and we want the messy tree OUT!
Disposing of your live tree is so easy in Cleveland.  You simply place it on the curb the day of your trash pick-up and they will haul it away to make it into mulch.  Then you will see it again in the spring in a city garden.

5 Christmas Tree MUST DO Safety Tips
  1. Make sure tree is at least 3 feet away from a heat source (fireplace, radiator, candles, heat vents or lights)
  2. Always turn OFF Christmas tree lights before leaving your home or going to bed (never use outdoor tree lights)
  3. If artificial make sure it is certified as fire retardant.  If you have a  live tree make sure it has fresh green needles that do not fall out when touched
  4. Do not block an exit
  5. Get rid of the tree when it starts to drop this video to see how fast a Christmas tree burns...less than 20 seconds:
