If you have a “real” Christmas tree, it will eventually need to be disposed of. The Town of Cobourg (not the County) provides this service starting January 8, 2018. So if you have a Christmas tree to be disposed of, put it out on the curbside the night of January 7 and sometime in that week, a Cobourg Works department truck will come by and run your tree through their chipper.
The Town’s announcement says:
Citizens are asked to place trees on the curbside the night prior to pick up, to not wrap trees in plastic and to remove all nails, metal, ornaments, tree stands and tinsel from the trees.
Please also be advised that weather conditions may delay pick up on any given day.
In previous years they said that if you miss the pickup, you can drop your tree off at the Public Works Yard but that option was missing this year – maybe their move to Building 7 in Northam Park has made it difficult.
If you need further info, you can call the Public Works Department at (905) 372-9971.
