Ready to take down your Christmas tree and put away the decorations? Here's what you need to know about recycling your tree in Greenwich.
Plenty of residents are taking advantage of The Department of Parks and Recreation Christmas tree recycling program.
All trees to be recycled must be undecorated (ornaments, tinsel, lights and stands must be removed). The program will end on Friday, Jan. 31.
The Parks & Trees Division will be recycling the trees by chipping them. The wood chips, which will be available at each of the four collection sites, can be used by residents as mulch or compost. Tree chips retained by the town will be used in parks as mulch for trails in woodlands, shrub beds, and soil stabilization.
