In the continuing effort to go green, Ridley Park Borough begins recycling used Christmas trees from the curbside throughout the 2 week period after Christmas. This is another win-win proposition from new Council President Bob Bergen (Mr Recycle). The weight of the collected trees becomes part of our annual recycling report and their weight is removed for our regular trash stream. What's great about this is the borough makes money from recycling and pays out money for trash removal - this turns our used trees into income; a win-win for everyone.
On NON TRASH DAYS, The Ridley Park Highway Department will patrol our streets for trees at the curbside. Christmas Trees must be free of tinsel, lights and decorations. Your tree's like cash so keep it from the trash.
On TRASH DAYS, trees with tinsel and decoration should be mixed with your regular trash. This does not contribute to our recycling effort and will add weight to our regular trash bill. Tree's in the trash can't be turned into cash.
From Monday, Dec 28 through Wednesday, January 13 Christmas trees free of tinsel, lights and decorations will also be accepted at our highway garage on Ridley Ave.
Don’t hesitate to call Bob Berger 610-547-5775 for more details.
