Christmas tree recycling begins Jan. 3

For locations served by Bowling Green refuse & recycling collection, Christmas trees will be collected through a special one week collection in January.

This year’s collection will begin on Jan. 3. Collection is not connected to the regular refuse/recycling schedule.

Follow the guidelines below:

• Trees should be placed curbside by 7 a.m. the Tuesday of the scheduled collection week.

• Remove all decorations, metal nails, lights and tree stands.

• Trees should not be left in bags.

Once crews complete a street, they will not return. Christmas trees are recycled into wood chips, which are available for resident use.
