Soon as the holidays come to a close and Christmas trees drop their needles, recycle your tree and help beautify the community as well. Upcycle your Christmas tree into useful mulch.
South Suburban Parks and Recreation and the City of Littleton will offer free Christmas tree recycling at two locations, Dec. 26 through Jan. 15, Willow Spring Service Center, 7100 S. Holly St. in Centennial, and Cornerstone Park, 5150 S. Windermere St., corner of Belleview and Windermere.
Residents within the South Suburban District can drop off their tree seven days a week, 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, 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 district residents are encouraged to take advantage of this free program.
The trees will be mulched and used in landscaping throughout the district and Littleton.
Residents can obtain free mulch, beginning Dec. 28. The mulch will be available weekdays, 7:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Willow Spring site.
Mulch is available from the City of Littleton throughout the year at the northwest corner of South Prescott Street and West Prentice Ave. Residents are responsible for loading and are encouraged to bring bags or trashcans and a shovel or pitchfork. Call South Suburban at 303-721-8478 or the City of Littleton at 303-795-3863 for more information.
