Christmas Tree Recycling

You can bring your tree to the yard waste area at the facility, as well as several tree collection sites in Greenwich:

• Byram Park (residents only; no commercial haulers) in the parking lot by the second gate 8:00am to 4:00pm on weekdays and weekends

• Bruce Park (residents only; no commercial haulers) parking lot by the children’s playground opposite the entrance to the Bruce museum on weekdays and weekends 8:00am to 4:00pm

• Tod’s Point (residents only no commercial haulers) in the parking lot across from the nature center weekdays and weekends 6:00am until sunset

• Holly Hill Resource Recovery Facility. Residents and commercial haulers may place trees in the yard waste area, 7:00am until 2:30pm on weekdays and Saturdays 7:00am until 12:00 noon.

Tree recycling starts Monday, Dec 26, 2022 and ends Tuesday, January 31, 2023.

Information about the Christmas tree collection site is available here.

Christmas Tree Lights Recycling

Residents who wish to dispose of their used Christmas lights are asked to keep them out of the trash and recycle them at Holly Hill. The town has placed a convenient toter bin right by the electronic waste container.

The Greenwich Recycling Advisory Board (GRAB) will be responsible for packing and forwarding to a facility that has the capability of recycling the glass, copper and plastic components. 

Alternatively, residents can also participate directly by boxing up old, broken lights and sending to:

Christmas Light Source
Recycling Program
4313 Elmwood Drive
Benbrook, TX 76116

This company uses proceeds from the recycling to buy books and educational games and toys which are then donated to the Toys for Tots Foundation.

Also, the staff at Holly Hill request that residents not put plastic bags into single stream recycling.

In fact, Patrick Collins said recycling inside a plastic bag becomes garbage. And when plastic bags do make their way to the facility, “they gum up the works.”
