Recycle Christmas Trees At Colonial Park

The Somerset County Park Commission will be accepting natural Christmas trees for recycling from Saturday, December 26, 2015 through Sunday, January 31, 2016 at Colonial Park parking lot F, 156 Mettlers Road.

The facility will accept trees from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., seven days a week.

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.

Following these guidelines is necessary to maintain a manageable recycling program.

Trees will be chipped into wood chip mulch which will be used throughout the park system to mulch plantings. Some chips/mulch will be made available to the public at each of the drop-off sites at no cost.

For information, call the Somerset County Park Commission Horticulture Department at (732) 873-2459, ext. 21 or NJ Relay at 711 for individuals with a hearing or speech impairment, Monday to Friday (except holidays) from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
