Recycle Your Christmas Trees This Week in Easton

The city of Easton will start collecting Christmas trees this week.

Recycle Your Christmas Trees This Week in Easton
The holiday season is over, and you may be wondering how to get rid of your Christmas tree.

You can always drive them to the Easton recycling center, but if the thought of transporting an eight-foot fir tree seems kind of daunting, don't worry. For the next two weeks, you can just leave them on the curb.

The city will pick up trees Monday through Thursday this week and next week, using the following schedule:

  • Monday, Jan. 6: College Hill
  • Tuesday, Jan. 7: 10th Street east to Larry Holmes Drive
  • Wednesday, Jan. 8: South Side including the Highlands
  • Thursday, Jan. 9: 10th Street west to 15th Street
The same schedule will repeat starting Jan. 13. 

Trees can be placed curbside, with all decorations and lights removed. You can put them in bags, but any trees bound with rope or string won't be accepted, as this could damage the chipping equipment.

You can also drop off trees at the recycling center at 500 Bushkill Drive from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
