Where to Recycle Your Live Christmas Tree in Broome County
Christmas has come and gone and many of us will start taking down our Christmas tree soon. If you put up a live tree this year and don't know where to dispose of it, the Go Broome County website offers some help. Keep in mind that in order to properly dispose of your Christmas tree at one of these locations, you must be a resident of Broome County and you also must remove everything from your tree beforehand including tinsel and decorations.
Trees will be accepted at the residential drop-off area at the Broome County Landfill on Knapp Road Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. and on Saturday from 7 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. Your tree will be chipped and composted.
The NYSDEC Sub-office is located at 1679 Route 11 in Kirkwood and will accept your tree from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The trees are chipped and spread along area hiking trails in the parks.
Grippen Park in Endicott will take your live Christmas tree during daylight hours only. When you drop your tree off at this location, it will be chipped and composted.
