The Department of Environmental Health is collecting Christmas trees for recycling, through Thursday Jan. 17. Only live and natural trees without decorations are accepted.

The trees are mulched, so all tinsel, ornaments, lights, wires and stands must be removed. Plastic bags used for transport should also be removed before putting trees in the collection bins at the following locations:

  • Ed Bush Stadium, West Bay
  • George Town Cricket Field
  • George Town landfill public drop-off area
  • Spotts Dock, Savannah
  • Entrance of Frank Sound Road

Residents are invited to come out from 8 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 26 and to bring their shovels and bags for the removal of free mulch from the Cricket Field.

Mulch will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis, according to the DEH.
