GREENWICH, Conn. The holiday season may be over, but you can be green by turning in your Christmas tree to the town to be recycled. The Greenwich Department of Parks and Recreation will recycle the trees by chipping them.
Residents can use the chips as mulch and compost. The town will use remaining chips for mulch in parks and as shrub beds and soil stabilizers on trails in woodlands. Trees must have all decorations removed, including lights, stands and ornaments.
Residents can drop off trees at several sites, including:
The Holly Hill Recycling Center: from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays and 7 a.m. to noon Saturdays in the yard waste area;
Byram Park: from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the parking lot by the concession stand;
Bruce Park: from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the children's playground parking lot; and
Greenwich Point: from 6 a.m. to sunset in the first parking lot opposite the nature center.
No trees will be accepted after Jan. 31.
