You have three weeks beginning today, Jan. 6, to dispose of your dried-out Christmas tree like you always have in Barrington, according to the public works department.
Put out the tree during the first three weeks in January with your usual trash on the same day Mega Disposal makes your usual pick-up.
Make sure the tree is stripped of all decorations. Mega won't carry away the tree if it’s littered with garland or other decorations.
A separate truck will come around to pick up dead trees. They will be carried to the Central Landfill in Johnston to be ground into mulch.
You must put out your tree for disposal during the first three weeks of January. The sooner the better before your tree dries out and becomes a fire hazard.
Do NOT dispose of your tree at Walker Farm, the town’s leaf disposal site. It is NOT a legal dumping spot for Christmas trees. You will be fined if you drop off your tree at Walker Farm.
