(Monticello, NY 10:15am) - Sullivan County residents, businesses and visitors are encouraged to recycle their Christmas trees at the end of this Holiday season.
For individuals with access to back yards and open spaces, strategically-placed, retired Christmas trees offer welcome cover during the winter months for birds and wildlife.
Residents, businesses and visitors with limited access to open space, however, are encouraged to take their trees to any Sullivan County Recycling & Transfer Station for FREE disposal.
Sullivan County Division of Public Works employees will chip the trees to incorporate them for use as mulch in County landscaping projects. The Division hopes to conserve natural resources and enhance the appearance of the County with this Holiday tradition. For additional information, please call the Division of Public Works at 845-807-0261.
