Christmas trees to be recycled into free mulch

Recycle Christmas tree symbolThe City of Littleton and South Suburban Parks and Recreation will collect and mulch Christmas trees from December 26 through January 16. The Littleton collection site is located at Cornerstone Regional Park at the southeast corner of West Belleview Avenue and South Windermere Street. South Suburban will also collect trees at the Willow Springs Service Center at 7100 South Holly Street. Both sites will be open every day during daylight hours.

All lights, ornaments, nails, and plastic bags must be removed prior to dropping off trees. This drop off site is for natural trees only. Do not drop off flocked or artificial trees, leaves, branches, or other refuse. The trees will be ground into mulch, which will be available for free at the sites as long as the supply lasts.

Littleton’s Grounds Maintenance Division provides free wood mulch throughout the year for residents to pick up. 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 and should bring bags, trash cans, and any other necessary tools. For information call 303-795-3766.
