Christmas Tree Disposal Info for Westfield Residents

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty NJ# 9483506

First of all, let me thank everyone who purchased their trees and garlands this year from the Westfield Area Y's Men's Christmas Tree Lot. The response we received was tremendous. We sold out of our entire stock well before Christmas Day. All money raised from the lot helps us with our community programs throughout the year. So, we greatly appreciate the public's patronage. Speaking of Christmas trees, the City recently released their Westfield Christmas tree disposal information to help residents know where to take their trees now that the holidays are over.

Unfortunately, Westfield curbside service does not include Christmas tree disposal. But the City allows free drop off at the Conservation Center every Saturday during January.

However, they do allow free drop off of all trees, Hanukkah bushes, leaves, and other recyclable materials at the Westfield Conservation Center (1300 Lamberts Mill Rd). Every Saturday in January (from 9 am to 3 pm), residents may take these items to the center for free disposal. Make sure to remove any decorations (tinsel, lights, ribbons, etc.) and the tree stand before dropping it off. This free service is only available to Westfield residents during January. Contact the Conservation Center at (908) 789-4100 for further information.

Also, as a quick reminder, 2021 brings us a new recycling service contract with Grand Sanitation. This may affect curbside recycling service for some Westfield residents. For more information, please visit the City of Westfield's website here.

COVID Rules at the Conservation Center

The Westfield Conservation Center operates under the CDC's COVID-19 guidelines. They observe all social distancing protocols. Be aware that this may create longer than usual lines when dropping off your recyclables. Please remain patient. The staff works as quickly as possible to move people through while watching out for the health and safety of the public. Wear a mask when interacting with center staff. And, if you feel sick, stay home. Feel free to come back when you feel better. We are all in this together.

Good morning Scott. No more searching for a disposal site for me, I have gone artificial. Much easier living in downtown Chicago. Years ago, living in the suburbs only real trees in our home. Enjoy your day.

The right Charlotte REALTOR!

I can't believe there are still people hanging on to their Christmas trees at this late date. I doubt there's much left of the tree by now.

Scott, this is a great service.  In our area the cities pick up the trees in designated areas and then shred them and use the mulch in the parks and trails.
