LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Township of Livingston’s Christmas Tree Collection and Recycling program will begin on Jan. 4, 2021, and will end on Jan. 29, 2021.

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

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

In conjunction with the Livingston Department of Public Works (DPW), the township has added another environmentally friendly aspect to the program. Employees of the DPW 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 flower beds and garden borders. 

The DPW collected and recycled more than 1,175 Christmas trees last year.
