Wilmington’s Public Works Commissioner Kelly Williams announced today that the City will begin collecting discarded Christmas trees on regularly scheduled recycling days throughout the month of January.

Trees must be brought to the curb between 6 p.m. the day before collection and 4 a.m. the day of collection.

City residents also have the option of taking their tree to the Delaware Center for Horticulture (DCH) parking lot at 1810 North DuPont Street this Saturday, January 8, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for its annual TreeCycle event []. Trees will be shredded for FREE thanks to DCH’s partner, The Davey Tree Expert Company.
