You Ask, Patch Answers: Curbside Christmas Tree Pickup
When can Lexington residents put out Christmas trees for curbside collection?
With the arrival of the New Year, another holiday season has come to an end, leaving many with decorations to take down and Christmas – or, Holiday – trees to dispose of. Luckily, there are a number of ways to do that here in Lexington.
Here’s what we found out from the town’s recycling flyer for 2012-2013.
There are two basic options for recycling a Christmas tree: curbside collection or dropping it off at the compost facility on Hartwell Avenue. Trees are no longer accepted at the DPW building on Bedford Street.
Special curbside recycling collection of Christmas trees takes place this week and next (Dec. 31 to Jan. 5 and Jan. 7 to 11). To participate, residents must remove all foreign objects from the trees and place them curbside separate from trash and recyclables.
Alternatively, residents can drop off their trees at the compost facility through Jan. 31.
