Christmas Tree-cycling for January 2019

CHRISTMAS TREECYCLING

Boone County is offering two programs to recycle Christmas trees.

Christmas Tree Pick-Up: The City of Florence’s Public Services Department will run their snow routes to pick up trees curbside from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 2, 2019.

Residents should place their tree out on the curb no later than 7:00 a.m. The trees will be taken to a collection point and ground into mulch.

There will be no curbside pickup service outside the city of Florence.NOTE: If crews must run snow routes to treat roads that day, tree pickup will occur the day after the roads have been cleared.

Christmas Tree Drop-Off: Trees may be dropped off at five sites before 8:00 am on January 12, 2019.  These trees will be turned into mulch or used with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife to improve fish habitats in local waterways of Northern Kentucky.
