LIVINGSTON, NJ – The Township of Livingston’s Christmas Tree Collection and Recycling program will begin on Jan. 2 and will end on Jan. 31.

Last year, the township, in conjunction with the Livingston Department of Public Works (DPW), collected and recycled more than 1,175 Christmas trees.

Once again, employees of the DPW will chip the trees into mulch, which is made available to residents for pickup at no cost. The mulch created from the trees can be used in flowerbeds and garden borders.

According to the township, Christmas tree collection program saves the cost of garbage disposal, since the township is charged by weight to remove bulk items.

Undecorated live-cut Christmas trees will be collected Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Residents can simply leave their trees at the curb, as they would for regular recycling.
