Christmas tree collection to begin

Now that the New Year has arrived, the City of Bristol is collecting Christmas trees for the next two weeks. Place trees curbside by 6 a.m. on your regular rubbish collection day.

The city said trees must have all tree stands, lights, ornaments, and tree bags removed.

The city asks residents to keep your Christmas tree (or any other object or container) at least five feet from your city rubbish barrel as well as five feet between other barrels if you place more than one curbside.
