During that week, you should put your tree on the curb on your normal trash collection day.

FRAMINGHAM, MA- It's been nearly a month since Christmas, and if you still have a Christmas tree in your home, it's most likely very dried out -- and could be a fire hazard at this point in time.

The DPW will only pickup trees if all decorations, strands of lights, tinsel/garland, etc, have been removed -- and the tree can not be in a plastic bag, (or it will not be picked up).
