Dates for the 2016-17 program will be announced in the fall.
The City of Littleton and South Suburban Parks and Recreation will collect and mulch Christmas trees starting December 26, 2014 through January 12, 2015.
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.
Residents can drop off their tree seven days a week, from sunrise to sunset, in both locations.
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. 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 day light hours and the mulch supply is replenished regularly. Residents are responsible for loading so bring bags, trash cans and a shovel or pitchfork.
