Recycle Your Christmas Tree at the Graydon Lot

Not leaving it for debris pickup helps the village.

Looking to get rid of your Christmas tree? The village has you covered.

Head to the Graydon parking lot at any time and drop it off. Sure, you could leave it out on the street. But heading over to the Graydon lot limits street debris and allows the crews to maintain schedule, according to the village.

Each tree is chipped and 100 percent recycled to be used in the village, according to the government.

The lot is located at the corner of Northern Parkway and Linwood Avenue. Trees are accepted seven days a week.

Really...that is ridiculous. Who is going to put a drid tree into thir car to get needles all over it and then we need to go to the car wash and spend money to help the village. And you won't even lower our taxes.

The tree should not even be in doors if it is dried out ,if properly watered the tree will be fine . Besides who puts a tree IN there car?

Actually, for anyone who has a vehicle that can handle this detail (a pick-up truck, perhaps or a work van... or even a car with a large trunk) it's a great idea... can anyone being in a tree, (Glen Rock or Fair Lawn resident for instance) or is Ridgewood residency a requirement?

I agree with limabean, this is absurd. Only those who own pickup trucks or cargo vans can easily participate. I am surprised the Village did not make an announcement that they would not be picking up Christmas trees (as they initially made about Sandy storm debris), and then flip flop after hundreds had dirtied their cars transporting trees to Graydon. Who was asleep at the switch and missed this opportunity to screw with our minds again?

James, The article states "Sure, you could leave it out on the street." Does that mean that it is voluntary to bring our trees in as a means of helping the Village? Or do we now have to bring our trees in?

There are two options: you could leave it on the street for the crews to pick up; or you can take it to the Graydon lot. It's totally voluntary.

The official 2013 VOR calendar indicates that tree pickup will begin on January 3, and conclude by January 28. The calendar indicates that residents are NOT to call about tree pickup unless your tree is not picked up by January 28.

Best solution was my "Fiber Optic" multi light tree that has lasted for years. Haven't you kids learned anything yet? HAPPY NEW YEAR.....2013 ... A Modernization of thinking year.
