Get Rid of Your Tree (Sans Fire)

Getting rid of a holiday tree here in Tacoma is pretty easy with our local recycling program. You can toss it in your yard debris bin throughout most of January (though if it fits I don't see why you couldn't do so anytime). If it doesn't fit you can chop it into 3' lengths and leave it on the curb during yard debris pick-up weeks. They don't take flocked trees (which I can believe anyone would pay for in the first place) and be sure to remove all the decorations.

Best get rid of it now else it might succumb to a wayward candle or hot bulb and might go up like this guy demonstrates in his Tacoma driveway.

It wasn't my idea to buy a flocked tree this year, but of course the disposal of it is going to fall on me.

What is flocking made of, anyway? I wonder if there's some way I could recycle it into insulation... or feed it to the mice living in my pantry.


Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.

So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
