City of Newburgh Schedules Christmas Tree Pick-UpJan 9th, 2013 | By HV Insider | Category: Community Calendar
Holidays officially over? Time to take down your Christmas tree? The DPW is providing normal curbside pick-up. In order to expedite Christmas tree removal, residents can also call DPW at (845) 565-3297 to arrange for pickup.
Tinsel and all ornaments should be removed so that the bare Christmas trees can be recycled into chips and mulch. The City’s annual Christmas Tree Recycling event (co-sponsored by DPW, Shade Tree Commission and Downing Park Planning Committee) will resume in 2014 at the Downing Park Greenhouses.
Meanwhile, gardeners are reminded that free mulch will be available for spring planting from the DPW at the Pierce’s Road site on Wednesdays from 8:30 – noon.
