The Solid Waste Division of Public Works will host its annual collection of Christmas trees through January 25, 2014. Worcester County residents can drop off trees at the Berlin and Pocomoke Homeowners Convenience Centers at no cost, but should remove all decorations from the trees before disposing of them.
Businesses and organizations that sold trees will not be permitted to drop off trees at the convenience centers, but they may take them to the Central Landfill in Newark where a standard disposal fee of $70.00 per ton will be charged. All trees brought in for disposal will be mulched and recycled. For more information, contact Recycling Manager Ron Taylor at (410) 632-3177.
