Christmas Tree Safety in Columbia
Christmas trees are a beautiful sight and many love to see them glowing with lights. However, no one wants to see one glowing because of a fire. It is very important to dispose of the tree once Christmas is over or the tree has dried out.
In Columbia, trees can be placed curbside with your regular trash. After January 31st, trees placed curbside need to be cut into four foot lengths and bundled. There are also drop off sites at Capen Park Site or Parkside Mulch Site.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, half of the Christmas tree fires are caused by electrical problems or a heat source being too close. When Christmas tree fires do occur, they tend to be more serious fires.
