The City of Littleton and South Suburban Park and Recreation will be collecting and mulching Christmas trees from December 26 through January 11. The Littleton collection site is at Cornerstone Park at the southeast corner of West Belleview Avenue and South Windermere Street. Access to the site is off of Windermere Street just south of Belleview, with the drop site in the parking lot adjacent to the soccer fields. South Suburban is collecting trees at its Willow Springs Service Center at 7100 South Holly Street. Both sites are open every day during daylight hours.

Remove all lights, ornaments, nails, and plastic bags The drop off is for Christmas trees only. Do not drop off flocked trees, artificial trees, leaves, branches or other refuse. The trees will be ground into mulch and available free to the public.

The city also provides free wood mulch throughout the year for pickup. This mulch is produced by tree trimming operations. The mulch pile is located on the northwest corner of South Prescott Street and West Prentice Avenue. The site is open during daylight hours and the mulch supply is replenished regularly. Residents are responsible for loading. For information call 303-795-3863.
