How to properly dispose of your Christmas tree in Hoboken

HOBOKEN – No, don’t just stick your Christmas tree, lights, and ornament in your garbage bin like everything else.
This week the city announced the proper steps to take to when disposing of your Christmas tree. Residents are advised to remove all lights, ornaments and the stand and DO NOT place the tree in a plastic bag. Trees should be placed at the curb on Tuesday and Thursday nights for pickup on Wednesday and Friday.
A city official said a truck will conduct pickups all day. If residents have questions or want to report a location where a tree needs to be picked up, call 201-420-2277.
