How To Get Rid Of Your Christmas Tree This Year
As the holiday season starts to wind down, perhaps you're wondering what to do with that glorious Christmas Tree of yours? (Chances are it's probably starting to shed needles all over the place by now and you want it gone, ASAP!)
If you live in the greater Bangor area, here are the deets for disposing of your Yuletide bush!
Bangor Christmas Tree Collection will start up January 2nd and run till the 17th. All you need to do is remove the decorations from your tree and put it out curbside. It should be noted, though, that they won't be collecting wreaths at this time. If you have one of those, you can put it out with the regular trash collection. If you want more information, click here.
In Brewer, they won't be coming around to collect the trees, but rather ask folks to remove the decorations from the tree, and then drop it off on the Wilson St. side of the Brewer Auditorium. Brewer Public Works will come by and pick up the tree piles after January 19th, so you'll have till then to stick it in that stack. According to their website, the City Of Brewer will also accept trees at the transfer station, too.
If you're in Old Town, your disposal spot is the old Old Town Canoe Factory site. They were kind enough to give directions, should you need them, on their facebook page.
And In Orono, curbside pick up of Christmas Trees will start up January 2nd and go till January 17th. For details, check out this link to the Orono Observer for more information.
If you're like me, and your OCD has prevented you from having a real tree for years, and you have to clean up your fake tree, plastic wrap is your friend! For the last 4 years, I have saran wrapped my tree, decorations and all, at the end of the Christmas Season, and brought it down to the basement till next Christmas. It's pretty strange, I admit. But its also pretty awesome!
