AMHERST – It’s that time of New Year again. Most families are ripping down their Christmas ornaments and tearing down the tinsel but where do they put that browning Christmas tree?
“Anyone can bring their Christmas trees here (Cumberland Central Landfill). Drop off is free,” said Stephen Rayworth with Cumberland County Joint Services.
With the Christmas season over, municipalities across the county are gearing up for their annual Christmas tree cleanup.
Rayworth said each municipality however, has their own pick up date for Christmas trees. The town of Amherst will be having their collection Jan 7-11.
“The town of Springhill will be having theirs on Monday Jan. 14,” said Rayworth. “People in Parrsboro can take (their trees) to the Public Works garage. They can drop them off there at any time.”
River Hebert, Advocate and Pugwash residents can drop their trees off tat the transfer stations or, they can bring them to the landfill.
Rayworth said collecting all the Christmas trees and getting them ready for the compost pile is always a sad time.
“I always get upset when I’m saying goodbye to Christmas,” he said.
