DPW to Collect and Recycle Christmas Trees in January

The Township of Livingston’s Christmas Tree Collection and Recycling program will begin on January 3, 2022, and will end on January 31, 2022. 

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

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

The Department of Public Works provides an additional environmentally friendly aspect to the collection program. DPW employees chip the trees into mulch, which is made available to residents for pickup at no cost. Once the program begins, mulch can be picked up behind the Circle Fire Station on W. Northfield Road.

The mulch created from the trees can be used in flower beds and garden borders. The DPW collected and recycled over 1,175 Christmas trees last year.
