The Town of Parker will again be hosting the Annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program from Dec. 26, 2012 through Jan. 27, 2013. This year's drop off site will again be the East paved Salisbury Equestrian Park parking lot, located at 12010 S. Motsenbocker Rd., and available to residents only.
Both green and flocked real trees are accepted. Before dropping off any Christmas trees, please 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.
Drop off during park hours only from 6 a.m. to 11p.m. Pease do not illegally dump any other items at the drop-off location. No commercial tree lot disposal.
The trees collected by the program will be chipped into mulch, which will be available at no charge to residents. Mulch should be available starting 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.
