When the lights are taken down and ornaments are carefully packed away, residents can take their bare Christmas trees to two sites for recycling.
South Suburban Parks and Recreation and the City of Littleton offer free Christmas tree recycling from Dec. 26 to Jan. 12 at South Suburban's Willow Spring Service Center, 7100 S. Holly St., Centennial, and Cornerstone Park, 5150 S. Windermere St., Littleton.
Residents can drop off their trees seven days a week from sunrise to sunset in Cornerstone's parking lot, adjacent to the soccer fields, or at the Willow Spring Service Center in the designated enclosure by the front gate.
All decorations need to be removed from the tree, including lights, ornaments, garland, tinsel and stands. If the tree is wrapped in a plastic bag, it must be removed at drop-off. Flocked or artificial trees and yard refuse will not be accepted.
Most trash and waste removal companies do not accept Christmas trees, so residents are encouraged to take advantage of this free program.
The trees will be chipped with free mulch available for pick-up at both sites, beginning Dec. 30. The mulch is available weekdays, from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Willow Spring site and during daylight hours every day at Cornerstone Park. Mulch is also available from the City of Littleton throughout the year at the northwest corner of South Prescott Street and West Prentice Avenue.
Residents are responsible for loading and are encouraged to bring bags or trash cans and a shovel or pitchfork. Call South Suburban at 303-721-8478 or the City of Littleton at 303-795-3766 for more information.
