Twas the Week After Christmas ...
...
and now what do i do with my Christmas tree?

Give your Christmas tree back to nature.... RECYCLE IT! Christmas trees are due to be collected separately by the Highway Department the first two weeks of January, weather permitting.

The trees will be collected on the same day as your regular trash.

 

Here's all you have to do: 

  1. Put your Christmas tree out on your regularly scheduled trash day, by 7am.

  2. Remove all artificial decorations such as tinsel, garland, plastic ornaments, lights and bulbs.

  3. PLEASE DO NOT PUT TREES IN PLASTIC BAGS; ..............AND PLEASE NO ARTIFICIAL TREES!

The trees that are collected will be brought to the Warwick Municipal Recycling Facility, and faster than Santa can say "HO-ho-ho!" they will be recycled into mulch. The Christmas tree wood chips are available to residents free of charge.
