Curbside Christmas Tree Chipping

Special Notice

This year there is an infection from imported trees and wreaths from North Carolina.  These products were sold at major retailers such as Home Depot, Steins, Costco, and others.  If you purchased a tree  or wreath from any of these  retailers, please do not  put them out for curbside chipping.  Instead, you can do one of the following:  
1.  Bag them and put them in the trash for regular pick-up.  Trees must fully fit in the trash cart so may need to be cut into pieces and bagged.   Advanced Disposal will NOT pick up full trees or trees left outside of the cart.
2.  Burn them in approved containers/pits if you have an authorized burn permit.  Burn permits can be obtained at Village Hall.

Please Note:  The insects involved in the infestation will survive the winter and can infect surrounding pine trees if infected mulch/chippings are spread in the future.  DPW staff will look for signs of infestation on trees put out for chipping.  If signs are found, the tree will not be chipped.  It will be tagged with a notice from DPW and you will need to dispose of it on your own - preferably in one of the above manners.
