After the New Year Celebrations comes the traditional cleaning up after the winter holidays. Christmas trees, which have been adorned with tinsel and numerous decorations, now lay bare and ready for recycling. Every year, the Department of Public Works (DPW) collects Christmas Trees in this environmentally friendly program. “This program saves the Township money,” said Michael Anello,Public Works Superintendent. “Not only from the cost of garbage disposal, since the Township is charged by weight to remove bulky items, but in providing mulch that is distributed, free of charge to residents, as well as spread over Township gardens.”

Christmas trees will be collected at the curb from January 3 through January 28, Monday to Friday (8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m). Last year, DPW employees chipped over 1,335 trees into mulch for flower beds and garden boarders. The chipper can chip up to 22” logs. Oversized limbs and trunks, from Christmas Trees and general tree maintenance are taken to Boards & Blams in Fairfield. The Saw Mill can handle logs of any size which are recycled into other wood products. In return the company made 150 stakes for signs, plagues and posts for Liberty Elm Tree.

For more information about the Township’s recycling initiatives, visit www.livingstonnj.org and click on “Recycling” in the left hand column. To schedule a mulch pickup, call the DPW at 973-535-7931.

You see, not too long ago I received an evite addressed to me from H&M@royalwedbot.co.uk.  Curiously, it was in my spam folder with a warning message. For an evite it was pretty ...
