Hamilton to Provide Collection Site for 'Used' Christmas Trees

Hamilton to Provide Collection Site for 'Used' Christmas Trees”

Sean Rice; Labor Foreman, Public Works "One thing that we do ask is make sure your lights are off".

All are welcome to recycle their natural trees on the day.

If you and your family cut the flawless tree for Christmas, odds are the needles are falling, and it's time to get rid of the once attractive tree.

Trees can be put in the brown garden waste bin if residents pay for the garden waste collection service.

Put money in a sealed envelope and place it around the bottom of the tree with a rubber band.

At wood recycling centres across the UK, Christmas trees are granted a variety of possible afterlives.

Those serviced by Empire Services should place their trees on the curb on Thursday, Jan. 11. Wilkes-Barre residents can also take trees to the DPW garage at 3 Conyngham Ave. on weekdays from 7 a.m. through 3:30 p.m. The Christmas tree branches can help protect the more delicate of perennials from frost or cold winter temperatures.

If your Christmas tree is still up or you've been waiting to get rid of it, several parishes and organizations are collecting the holiday evergreens for recycling.

For nearly 20 years, the Royal Botanical Gardens has been using donated Christmas trees to form natural barriers at the mouth of Grindstone Creek and Cootes Paradise. Workers will leave a note instructing residents whose trees are bagged or otherwise unfit to remove foreign objects before they haul it away. All collected trees will be turned into mulch, which is free to residents at the brush sites.

Flocked trees will not be picked up.
