Christmas Tree Recycling

Happy New Year! Below are four options to recycle your tree in West Sacramento. Please remove the tinsel, lights, stand and ornaments before recycling your tree. 

  • Recycle your tree curbside by placing it next to your organics cart on the regular service day, December 26th through January 22nd. Trees must be cut into lengths no longer than 5 feet. You may also cut your tree into smaller sections and place the pieces inside your organics cart.

State Mandated Water Restrictions, What Does This Mean?

The Governor has issued a state of emergency drought mandate which means the HOA’s cannot enforce/fine owners for missing landscaping (example: street trees), letting landscape deteriorate, or require owners to water. The HOA can only require routine maintenance which is mowing, weeding, edging, and trimming shrubs. The HOA can require owners remove any dead landscaping, but not replace at this time until the drought is lifted, unless further restrictions are put in place on HOA’s.

In addition, the State has moved forward with banning the irrigation of non-functional-turf in the commercial, institutional and industrial sector which applies to HOA’s. What does this mean for the association’s common areas?

  • Non-functional-turf is grass that is not used for recreation (lunch, picnics, events), and is not on the same zone as bushes or trees. This does not apply to the parks.
  • If there is a section of the HOA’s landscape that is purely decorative grass, the State is asking HOA’s not to water them during the Stage 2 Water Shortage.

Stage 2 Water Shortage-Help Save Up to 20% of Water Use

With the Stage 2 water shortage there are new State and City restrictions. All residents will need to adhere to the the following watering schedule:

Voluntary Actions to Save Water 

  • Reduce your irrigation runtimes to prevent runoff
  • Prevent landscape watering during rainfall
  • Wash only full loads of clothes
  • Use the dishwasher only after it is full
  • Water fountains must have a recirculating pump, and be leak-proof
