Retire Your Tree for Free at Any County Transfer Station

Monticello, NY – The Sullivan County Department of Solid Waste & Recycling is pleased to announce that it will once again accept retired Christmas trees at no charge from Sullivan County residents, businesses and visitors at the end of this Holiday season.

For individuals with access to back yards and open spaces, strategically-placed, spent Christmas trees offer welcome cover during the winter months for birds and wildlife. 

Residents, businesses and visitors with limited access to open space, however, are encouraged to take their trees to any Sullivan County Recycling & Transfer Station for FREE disposal.

“Sullivan County employees will chip the trees to incorporate them for use as mulch in County parks, landscaping and beautification projects,” said District 7 Legislator Joe Perrello, chair of the Legislature’s Public Works Committee. “Repurposing wood chips helps to conserve natural resources and enhance the appearance of the County with this Holiday tradition.”
