We've already entered the new year of 2024 and you may already be wondering how to properly dispose of your Christmas tree. ABC7NY spoke about the rules for collecting Christmas trees in the new year.

Brooklyn and Queens residents who already use curbside compost collection can put their tree out with their food scraps for collection on their regular compost and recycling collection day. This year such a service appeared for the first time.

Residents of the Bronx, Manhattan and Staten Island can drop off their trees for collection from Friday, January 5th through Saturday, January 13th. In these three boroughs, Christmas trees will be collected separately from trash and recyclables, so they may not be picked up right away. All stands and decorations should be removed before placing trees out for collection. It is prohibited to wrap Christmas trees in plastic bags.

After harvesting, the trees will be chopped, mixed with leaves and processed into compost for city needs. If you want to recycle your artificial tree, remove the metal base and stem and place them in a scrap metal container.

When is the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree removed and what happens to it?

Rockefeller Center's iconic Christmas tree will remain at 30 Rockefeller Plaza for several more weeks before it is removed on January 13th. Crews will remove the tree at 10 p.m., and following tradition, the 12-ton Norway spruce will be donated to Habitat for Humanity.

According to Rockefeller Center Master Gardener Eric Pause, Norway spruce is chosen not only for its aesthetic qualities, but also for its structure.

Habitat for Humanity says the wood obtained from the tree is very strong and flexible. It is ideal for making flooring, furniture and joinery.
