Oh Christmas Tree, o Christmas tree

…why are you still here after trash pick up?

Well hopefully today DPW, the folks who brought you the snazzy calendars, will pick up the evergreens on the sidewalk.

This is from the DC.GOV site:

Holiday Tree Collection – January 3-7, 2005

Residents who receive DC trash collection service are encouraged to put holiday trees—without ornaments—in curbside tree boxes by January 2, 2005. Trees will be picked up during a special one-week collection from January 3–7. Residents who wish to keep their trees longer should put them out at their normal point of trash collection (curbside or alley) after January 7. DPW trucks will then collect the trees with the regular trash, as space in trucks permit, over the following weeks.

If not, then I can take my time clipping pine needles for my compost bin to up the acid in it.
