The gifts have been given, dinner has been served and your brother-in-law is now snoring on the couch.

It's official. Christmas is over.

Now what to do with that tree?

Thanks to the City of San Diego’s Environmental Services Department, the answer is easy. From Dec. 26 until Jan. 23, residents of the City of San Diego can recycle their trees by dropping them off at 16  centers. Click here for the locations

Curbside yard waste recycling customers can place trees at the curb or cut up the tree so it fits into the green recycling containers.

There are some stipulations: No ornaments, no tinsel and no stands.

In addition to clean trees, flocked trees are also accepted.

The Miramar Greenery is located inside the Miramar Landfill, at 5180 Convoy Street, just north of Highway 52. It's open Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
