Date Change: Christmas Tree Pickup

January 10, 2011

223106_christmas_treeThe Ministry of Public Works, Waste Management section states the dates for Christmas Tree collection have changed from the dates sent out in a notice on January 5th, 2011.

Christmas trees will now be collected in the east-end on Wednesday, 19th January and in the west end on Wednesday, 26th January.

Trees should be left at the normal residential waste set out locations.

A Ministry spokesperson said: “As all Christmas trees are shredded prior to composting, we’d like to remind the public to remove all tinsel, lights, ornaments and tree bags. This assistance will keep our staff safe from flying metal objects, protect valuable shredding equipment and allow the production of higher quality finished compost”.

The Marsh Folly Composting Facility accepts horticultural materials from households and commercial entities, composting approximately 16,000 tonnes of material annually. Finished compost surpasses the environmental standards set for EPA grade “A” compost and is available for free of charge to residents and businesses.

Please call the Marsh Folly Composting Facility at 292-1517 or 292-7454 for further details.

    I remember years ago a mate of mine, Bruce Lorhan tried (about 20 years ago or so) to encourage Bermudians to buy cedar trees instead of the traditional XMas trees. Once the holidays were over, the cedar tree would be planted in the garden. It was a shame we Bermudians turned our backs on this opportunity. Bermudian send at least a million bucks a year to North America only to grind up the trees later. Just think of the money saved and the amount of cedar trees that would have been planted…and in the process of planting the trees many of us would have cleared away trash trees to make way.
