Warren Township residents may drop off live Christmas trees either at the township municipal complex at 46 Mountain Blvd. or at Somerset County tree recycling sites at two locations, including Bridgewater.
Warren residents may drop off Christmas trees until January 15 at the municipal complex. Residents are asked to place the tree next to the side of the parking lot just outside of the Department of Public Works gate.
Make sure all decorations are removed.
From 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., through Jan. 31, the Somerset County Park Commission will be accepting natural Christmas trees for recycling at no cost at two locations, in Bridgewater and Franklin Township.
Somerset County residents may bring their tree to Colonial Park, Parking Lot F, 156 Mettlers Road in Somerset, Franklin Township or to North Branch Park, 355 Milltown Road in Bridgewater at the northern end of the parking lot near the lighted ball field. Both facilities will accept trees seven days a week during those hours.
As an added public service, the trees will be chipped into wood chip mulch which will be used throughout the park system to mulch plantings. Some chips or mulch will be made available to the public at each of the drop-off sites at no cost.
Each family is limited to only one tree that must be free of all ornaments, wires, netting, and tinsel. Only natural trees will be accepted. Wreaths and garland will not be accepted as these items cannot be recycled.
Deliveries from groups or dealers will be rejected.
