Public Works to Collect and Recycle Christmas Trees in January

The Township of Livingston’s Christmas Tree Collection and Recycling program will begin on January 2, 2019, and will end on January 31, 2019.

Christmas trees will be collected Monday through Friday, from 8 am to 4 pm. Residents can simply leave their undecorated live-cut trees at the curb, as they would for regular recycling.

The Christmas tree collection program saves the cost of garbage disposal, since the Township is charged by weight to remove bulk items.

The Township, in conjunction with the Department of Public Works, has added another environmentally-friendly aspect to the program. Employees of the DPW chip the trees into mulch, which is made available to residents for pickup at no cost. The mulch created from the trees can be used in flower beds and garden borders. 

The DPW collected and recycled over 1,500 Christmas trees last year.
