Curbside Collection of Christmas Trees Begins January 2, 2019
BANGOR, ME -- Bangor residents may drop off Christmas trees at Bangor Public Works, 530 Maine Avenue, during daylight hours Monday-Sunday. As part of the City's commitment to recycle, the trees will be chipped, with some chips being used as a mulch and erosion control throughout the City. The remainder will be sold as biomass. The City asks that all wire and/or metal objects are removed from the trees prior to dropping them off.
Residents without means of transportation may place their tree curbside for pickup. Curbside collection will begin on Wednesday, January 2, 2019. Curbside collection will end on Friday, January 11, 2019.
Wreaths will not be collected for chipping either at the Public Works compound or curbside. Discarded wreaths are to be placed curbside with residential trash on the scheduled collection day. For more information, please call Public Works at 992-4500.
