Recycling your Christmas tree is a great way to give back to the environment and help reduce waste.
Residents can participate in annual Christmas tree recycling programs from Dec. 26 through mid-January (depending on each location). The trees collected by the program will be chipped into mulch, which may be made available to residents or utilized throughout the town and not discarded in a landfill.
Before dropping off any Christmas trees, please remove all plastic tarps, tree stands and nails, ornaments, lights, garlands, and tinsel. No artificial trees, garlands or wreathes with wire backing will be accepted. Live trees with artificial snow sprayed on the branches cannot be mulched.
