Now that Christmas has passed, it is time to take down the decorations, remove the tinsel and pack away the lights. But if you purchased a real Christmas tree, don’t trash it; recycle it. The City of Seabrook encourages residents to recycle their Christmas trees by dropping them off at the City’s Public Work Complex, 1100 Red Bluff Road in Seabrook, between today, December 27 and Wednesday, January 5.
Before recycling your tree, please remove all lights, ornaments, garland, tinsel, nails, stands and plastic bags. We cannot accept flocked or artificial trees. The tree recycling drop-off is for real Christmas trees only; yard refuse will not be accepted.
Public Works will be chipping the recycled trees following January 5, and residents may stop by the Public Works Complex starting January 10 to pick up some mulch if they wish. Mulch will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Residents are responsible for transporting their trees to Public Works. Those who do not plan to participate in the recycling program may place their trees curbside on their scheduled heavy trash pickup day, and their tree will be disposed of by Waste Management.
