Live Christmas Tree Disposal

Posted December 26, 2018 in Community Alert by Anna Subler

As you’re taking down your Christmas decorations, remember that live trees can be disposed of with regular curbside trash pickup in Hilliard. Just place your tree at the curb, free of any wrapping paper or bags, and Local Waste will collect it.

Tree collection will take place with regular trash and recycling collection today, Wednesday, December 26, and next Wednesday, January 2.

Christmas trees can also be disposed of in your backyard in a variety of ways. Evergreen branches can be used to cover perennial gardens. These branches could be the difference between losing a plant this winter and seeing it bloom again next year. You may also cut up the smaller tree branches into one- to two-inch pieces to use as mulch.
