Holiday tree pick ups
It’s beginning to look a lot like the end of the holiday season and many municipalities are gearing up to help residents dispose of Christmas trees in environmentally friendly ways. Most towns will take a few weeks to complete pick-up of natural trees and ask residents to ensure that all lights, ornaments, tinsel and such are cleared fromtrees before they are left for disposal.
The town is offering a one time only pickup beginning January 11 that is expected to last approximately two weeks.
Since town officials will not advertise where the pick-up will begin, residents with trees to dispose of should leave them by the side of the road before 7 a.m. on January 11, or riskmissing their turn.
Public works employees say trees should be placed on the side of a driveway, rather than on snow mounds, as municipal employees assigned to picking up trees are also assigned to snow clearing.
For information or questions, call the municipal garage at 450 455-4664.
