BERLIN - Residents are reminded of the options available to dispose of fresh-cut Christmas trees.
Trees will be collected curbside the week of Jan. 16.
Trees must be at least six feet away from the collection cart so as not to interfere with disposal of household refuse. No plastic should be left on the tree.
Trees will also be accepted for recycling at the town recycling center on Massirio Drive during normal business hours: Monday through Friday 7:15 a.m. to 3:15 p.m., and Saturdays, Jan. 14 and 28, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
After collection, the trees will be chipped, creating mulch that will be available for pickup by the public at Sage Park’s main parking area.
For further information, call the Department of Public Works office at 860-828-7022.
