Littleton and South Suburban Parks and Recreation will again be collecting and mulching Christmas trees from December 26 thru January 16.
The Littleton collection site is located at Cornerstone Park at the southeast corner of West Belleview Avenue and South Windermere Street. Access to the site is off of Windermere Street just south of Belleview, with the drop site in the parking lot adjacent to the soccer fields. South Suburban will collect trees at its Willow Springs Service Center (WSSC), 7100 South Holly Street in Centennial. Look for the designated enclosure by the front gate. Both sites are open everyday during daylight hours.
All lights, ornaments, nails, and plastic bags must be removed prior to dropping off trees. This drop off site is for natural Christmas trees only. Do not drop off flocked trees, artificial trees, leaves, branches or other refuse. The trees will be ground into mulch, which will be available free to the public at the sites for as long as the supply lasts.
The city’s grounds maintenance division also provides free wood mulch throughout the year.
