RECYCLE YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE

Pilot Program in Monticello will Turn Trees and Brush into Mulch

December 23, 2013

[MONTICELLO] –   This year the Village of Monticello Department of Public Works (DPW) is providing curbside pickup and recycling of Christmas trees through a new pilot program in partnership with Sullivan Renaissance. 

Christmas trees left at the curb within the Village of Monticello through the month of January will be picked up by the DPW and brought to DeHoyos Park to be chipped.  All decorations, lights and stands must be removed before recycling.

The recycled trees will be ground into wood chips and used to mulch the planting beds on Broadway next spring.

“To keep the trees and other plants on Broadway in good health, the planting beds need to be mulched annually,” explained Sullivan Renaissance Horticultural Coordinator Diana K. Weiner, “Recycling these trees is not only good for the environment, but will also result in a cost savings to the village.

Village residents interested in learning more about the Christmas Tree Recycling Program should contact the Monticello DPW at 845-794-6130 x 312.   

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  For more information about its programs, visit www.sullivanrenaissance.org or call 845-295-2445.
