Christmas tree recycling

CR & R’s Christmas tree collection is underway for the next couple of weeks on your regular trash collection day (which is delayed by one day the weeks of Christmas and New Year’s Day).

If your tree is over 6 feet tall, it must be cut in half and placed curbside. You can also place small trees inside your green waste cart. Just be sure to remove all ornaments and tinsel.

Cool fact: Christmas trees are considered organic waste, meaning they can be composted, mulched or even converted into fuel. (The white tree is not compostable, however.)
