FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
City of Morgantown Offers Curbside Christmas Tree Recycling Program
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - The City of Morgantown is offering a free curbside Christmas tree recycling program for residents in the city.
Up to 200 of the recycled trees collected by the Public Works Department will be donated to the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources to enhance the fish habitat in Cheat Lake. Any additional trees collected will be chipped and used as mulch.
Trees will be picked up Monday-Thursday in January following an email or call placed to the Public Works Department to schedule a pick-up. Trees must be free of all decorations, including hooks, garland, tinsel, and lighting. Trees must not be placed in a bag or a trash can, but rather left loose for pick-up. Pick-up may be delayed due to inclement weather. The city recommends scheduling pick-up on a day different than when trash runs so the tree will not be picked up accidentally by Republic Services.
To schedule a tree pick-up on any Monday-Thursday in January, send an email to Erin Fullmer at email@example.com or call the Public Works Department at 304-291-7469 with your name, phone number, address and day of desired pick-up.
