How to recycle your real Christmas tree:
Real Christmas Trees - December 26 - January 31
The Department of Public Works is encouraging residents to bring their real Christmas trees to the Highway Division at 250 Boston Road after the holidays for recycling. The drop off will be available from Monday, December 26 until Tuesday, January 31.
For those who are unable to bring their Christmas tree to the designated site, Waste Management has scheduled the week of January 9-13 for curbside collection of Christmas Trees. Residents must have their tree on the curb on their scheduled collection day for Trash and Recycling. Please be sure tree is not in a bag, and not frozen to ground or stuck in snowbank.
All stands, tinsel, lights, and ornaments must be removed prior to drop-off at the Highway Division or curbside collection. Please NO trees in bags. The trees will be chipped and used as mulch. Artificial trees must be disposed of as trash, and are not accepted as part of this tree collection program.
The above services are for Billerica residents only.
