As a service provided by your DPW, Christmas Trees will be picked up at curbside during January. Christmas Trees will be collected on your regular trash day. Your Christmas Tree will be recycled so it needs to be totally cleaned. Please remove all ornaments, lights, and tinsel, and ensure there are no plastic bags on the tree. You can also drop your tree off at the Yard Waste Facility.
