The Town of Parker will host their annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program from Dec. 26, 2013 through Jan. 26, 2014. This year's drop-off site will again be the east paved Salisbury Park ballfields parking lot, at 11920 Motsenbocker Rd., and available to residents only.
Both green and flocked real trees are accepted. Before dropping off any Christmas trees, remove all plastic tarps, tree stands and nails, ornaments, lights, garland and tinsel. No artificial trees, garland or wreathes with wire backing will be accepted.
Please drop off during park hours only, 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., and do not illegally dump any other items at the drop-off location. Commercial tree lot disposal or yard waste is not permitted.
The trees collected by the program will be chipped into mulch, which will be available at no charge to residents around the first week in January. Remaining mulch will be utilized throughout the Town and not discarded in a landfill.
Residents should not place Christmas trees in garbage containers. Keeping trees out of the landfills helps extend the life of landfills and produces a useful resource. The annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program is just one of many ways that Parker residents can reduce, re-use and recycle.
Please contact the Town of Parker at 303.840.9546 with further questions.
