The City of Littleton and South Suburban Parks and Recreation are collecting and mulching Christmas trees from now through January 14, 2013. The Littleton collection site is located at Cornerstone Regional Park at the southeast corner of West Belleview Avenue and South Windermere Street. Enter the site from Windermere Street just south of Belleview, with the drop site in the parking lot adjacent to the soccer fields. South Suburban is also collecting trees at their Willow Springs Service Center at 7100 S. Holly Street. Both sites are open everyday during daylight hours.
Of course all lights, ornaments, nails, and plastic bags must be removed, prior to dropping off trees. This drop off site is for Christmas trees only. Please do not drop off flocked trees, artificial trees, washing machines, leaves, branches or other refuse. The trees will be ground into mulch, which will be available free to the public at the site for as long as the supply lasts.
The city’s grounds maintenance division also provides free self-service wood mulch throughout the year for city residents. This mulch is produced by ongoing tree trimming operations. The mulch pile is located on the northwest corner of South Prescott Street and West Prentice Avenue. The site is open to the public during daylight hours and the mulch supply is replenished regularly. Residents are responsible for loading, so bring bags, trash cans and a shovel or pitchfork.
