Springfield’s Department of Public Works Reminds Residents of Christmas Tree Collection
December 29, 2014 -Springfield, MA- The Department of Public Works reminds Springfield residents who have Christmas trees for disposal to place them on the curb on their normal recycling day.
The Solid Waste Division will collect them starting Tuesday, January 6, 2015 and end Friday, January 30, 2015. This will give every household two opportunities to place them out for pick up.
As a reminder, all trees MUST be free of any decorative lights, ornaments, decorations and tree stands.
Trees MUST NOT be placed in any bags or boxes. Please lay trees on their side. Please do not lean them up on anything.
Items should be placed out for collection no later than 6:30 a.m., on the day of collection.
For additional information on collection days residents can call 3-1-1 from a landline in the City of Springfield or (413) 736-3111.
