Christmas Trees
Christmas Trees are recycled for Town of DeWitt residents.
The Town will collect Christmas trees during the month of January. 

Place your tree – no plastic bags, metal, lights, tinsel, stands, or ornaments – at the curb, and the highway department will pick them up. 
They will make many trips through the neighborhoods to pick them up. 

In instances of trees getting buried and frozen into the snow banks, trees will get picked up when they reappear in the spring!  
OCRRA  (Onondaga County Resource Recovery Agency) coordinates a Tree Recycling program as well.
Contact them via the web or by calling (315) 453-2870 for their information.


Wreath Disposal

 How can I dispose of a wreath? Take the wreath apart.  NO METAL in the GREENERY
You can put the greenery curbside with a Christmas tree or put it out in the spring with other lawn debris. 
The support structure can be disposed of in the trash or recycling depending upon what the material is.
