Happy New Year from all of us at Mr. Trashman. Now that the presents are put away and we’re all back to work (or school), we know you are wondering, “What do I do with this tree?”
Like yard waste, we do not pick up or dispose of Christmas trees simply because our dump does not take them. But have no fear, below is a list of great options that might make you feel good in the process:
Acton: Boy Scout Troops 5 and 1820 are picking up trees for a suggested donation of $15. Pickup dates for 2017 are January 7 and January 14. Please visit: http://treepickup.blogspot.com/
Boxborough: The Boxborough Firefighters Association will be picking up Christmas trees on Saturday January 7, 2017, and residents will have the same options as in the past: drop off trees at the fire station for $5 or have the firefighters pick up your tree at your home for $10. Visit http://www.boxborough-ma.gov/fire-department/webforms/christmas-tree-pickup-form to schedule.
Concord: Trees may be brought to the Composting Site at 755 Walden Street (On Route 126, just across Route 2, before you reach Walden Pond.) Please visit http://www.concordnet.org/504/Christmas-Tree-Recycling for dates and more information.
Hudson: Boy Scouts are picking up trees in Hudson too. Click here to learn more.
Southborough: The Boy Scouts are busy here as well! Call 508-485-4052 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stow: Boy Scout Troop 1 will pick up your tree for a $10 donation. Learn more at http://www.wickedlocal.com/article/20111216/News/312169432.
Love these ideas but prefer to help the animals? SpringDell Farm in Littleton will take your trees for free up until January 9 at their Annual Christmas Tree Critter Collection! Just drop it off in the pile on a day you swing by. We hear the goats will be thankful!!!
