GREENWICH, Conn. -- The holiday season is not over yet, but the Greenwich Parks and Recreation Department wants you to think about recycling your Christmas tree when it is.
The Parks and Trees Division recycle the trees by chipping them. The wood chips can then be used by residents for mulch or compost. Tree chips retained by the town will be used in parks as mulch for trails in woodlands, shrub beds, and soil stabilization.
You can bring your tree to the following sites from Thursday, Dec. 26, to Friday, Jan. 31:
- Byram Park, at the corner of Rich Avenue and Byram Shore Road, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the parking lot by the concessions.
- Bruce Park, on Museum Drive, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the parking lot by the children’s playground, opposite the entrance to Bruce Museum
- Greenwich Point, at the end of Shore Road, from 6 a.m. until sunset at first parking lot across from the Nature Center.
- Holly Hill Recycling Center on Holly Hill Lane, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays and 7 a.m. to noon on Saturdays. Place trees in the yard waste area.
