What happens to your Christmas tree in HP?

What happens to your Christmas tree in HP? According to Mark Keirnan of the HP DPW, the chipping truck will be making the rounds in January, weather permitting (stopping when it snows). Please leave the trees at the curb, not in the street.  Have any large branches fallen on your property? Bring them to the curb too. The DPW truck will be out weekdays chipping the evergreens and branches and some of these fresh and fragrant chips and needles will be brought to the Harrington Park recycling center for resident use (free). Approximately 1/3 of the households in HP leave a tree (balsam, fir or pine) at the curb, which makes for a lot of chips.  As Harrington Park does not have a storage space for wood chips, the remainder are brought to Norwood.
