Southampton Town Offers Free Christmas Tree Disposal

For the month of January, three Southampton Town recycling centers will accept natural Christmas trees for no charge.

The service is available for town residents only—including residents of the villages that are within the town. Decorations, lights and wires must be removed first. The town does not pick up trees at curbside.

Trees may be dropped off at the North Sea center, 1370 Majors Path, seven days a week, the Hampton Bays center, 30 Jackson Avenue, seven days a week, and Westhampton center, 66 Old Country Road, six days a week, closed Wednesdays. Hours at all three locations are 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. The Sag Harbor center is not taking trees.

The trees will be mulched and that mulch will be free to residents in the spring.

All of the recycling centers will be closed January 1 and January 20. On February 1, regular brush fees will resume. A tree would likely cost just $5 to dispose of, though brush fees range as high as $30 per load.
