Christmas Tree Disposal – 2019/20 Edition

One of the biggest questions we get asked around the holidays is “will you pick up my Christmas Tree?”  Unfortunately, due to restrictions at our dumping site, the answer is No, we will not.  Instead we wanted to give you options for disposal and will continue to update this list as more become announced: 








NO SERVICE THURSDAY 2/9/17 – Winter Storm

Winter Storm Closure.  On Thursday, February 9th our service area is expecting a winter storm which could bring 12 inches of snow.  Due to the safety risk to our employees and the community of trying to operate in the storm, we are CLOSING on Thursday, February 9th.  Our disposal site has notified us of their closure as well.
Mr. Trashman’s closure will affect customers on our Thursday routes in Stow, as well as our Friday customers in Acton and Boxborough.  To make up for our closure on Thursday, affected routes will be serviced 1 day late.
Normal Thursday customers will be serviced on Friday, February 10th.
Normal Friday customers will be serviced on Saturday, February 11th.
Customers with collection days of Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will not be affected by our closure.
We appreciate all of your patience and understanding as we deal with the unpredictability of Mother Nature.

Christmas Tree Disposal

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:

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 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 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

Stow:  Boy Scout Troop 1 will pick up your tree for a $10 donation.  Learn more at

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!!!
