In what promises to be an unyielding display of unbridled Christmas horror, officials at City Hall will gather on the front steps on Tuesday to witness the 25th annual chipping of Christmas trees in a giant wood chipper. Terror will know no bounds as tree after tree is systematically forced through a machine that will turn onetime holiday decor into bits of sawdust and woodchips.


If you want to turn your tree over to these ghouls, you can stick your corpse of a Christmas tree on the curb next to trash bins before 6 a.m. on your scheduled garbage pickup day, starting Jan. 3-7 and again from Jan. 9-13. 'Trees should be stripped of all tinsel, decorations, plastic bags, stands, fake snow and lights. Trees over 6 feet tall should be cut in half," notes BCN.

The mutilated trees will then be turned over to Recology transfer station and recycling center which will be used as fuel in a waste-to-energy facility.
