(CMR) The Department of Environmental Health (DEH) has announced the beginning of its annual Natural Christmas Tree Recycling Program aimed at reducing the amount of waste entering the George Town Landfill.
Collection bins have now been placed for the public to drop off their natural Christmas trees in the following locations until January 31, 2024:
• Ed Bush Stadium, West Bay
• George Town Cricket Field
• George Town Landfill public drop-off area
• Spotts Dock
• The entrance of Frank Sound Rd
Residents are reminded to remove all wires, lights, ornaments and stands from Christmas trees before they are placed into collection bins.
The trees will later be shredded and free mulch will be made available to members of the public. Details and dates for the distribution of this material will be provided later.
