Residents Can Call To Have Christmas Trees Picked Up

With the Christmas season almost over, residents can put out their former Christmas trees out for collection. Residents can call the Department of Public Works (DPW) in order to request a pick-up.

The trees will be collected as part of a tree recycling program. The National Christmas Tree Association (link) encourages the program since evergreen conifers, spruces, pines, and firs are biodegradable and can easily be re-used or recycled for mulch and other purposes.

No end date has been provided for the tree collection. Anyone needing more information can call (908) 245-7676. The DPW’s hours are Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. till noon and 12:30 p.m. till 3:30 p.m.
