What One Local Town Is Doing With Christmas Trees
After the holidays are over, there's the clean up. Taking the ornaments and lights off the tree and getting it out of the house as needles drop all over the place! But what are you doing with your tree once it's out of the house? One town wants to help.
In Tiverton, residents will be able to leave their trees on the curb and the town will come and pick them up and recycle them
Between January 5th and 9th then again January 12th through 16th, Tiverton residents that leave their trees decoration and tinsel free by the side of the road will have them disposed of by the town.
Officials tell the Herald News that the trees will be picked up by Public Works, shredded in a chipper as they are collected and then the mulch produced will be available to town residents for free at the landfill, 3524 Main Road, during the landfill hours.
And if you miss the pick up dates in order to enjoy the Christmas spirit a little bit longer, Tiverton residents can also bring their trees to the landfill when its open for the same treatment.
