oh Christmas tree2What happens after the holiday is over? ~ 1/3 of the households in Harrington Park leave a tree at the curb. The HP DPW truck makes the rounds in January, weather permitting, and the balsams and firs and pines are chipped. oh Christmas tree Some of these fragrant chips and needles are brought to the recycling center for resident use, the rest are brought to Norwood as HP does not have a storage space for wood chips. As of mid-January 16.5 cubic yards of evergreen chips had been taken to Norwood.
