How to Recycle Christmas Trees in Lexington

Curbside pickup starts next week, or you can drop them off at the Hartwell Avenue Compost Facility.

Lexington residents can kick Christmas trees to the curb the next two weeks for recycling. 

According to the town, special curbside collection for Christmas tree recycling will be held the weeks of Jan. 3 to Jan. 7 and Jan. 9 to Jan. 13. Trees will be picked up in a separate truck on regular collection days.

In order for tress to be picked up curbside, residents must remove all foreign objects—including plastic bags, ornaments, tinsel, lights—and place the trees curbside, separate from other trash and recyclables.

Alternatively, trees can be dropped off at the Lexington Compost Facility on Hartwell Avenue between Dec. 27 and Jan. 31. All foreign objects must be removed from those trees, as well. 

Christmas trees are no longer accepted at the Public Services Building on Bedford Street. 

According to Town Manager Carl Valente, the above information is also available in the recycling flyer sent out to residents in September and is also available on the town website.
