City of Kentwood Will Offer Holiday Tree and String Light Recycling to Residents

The City of Kentwood will offer holiday tree and string light recycling services to residents this winter at the Department of Public Works, 5068 Breton Ave. SE.

Residents may bring holiday trees to the recycling site Dec. 27-Jan. 31 between 6:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m.–noon Saturday. The drop-off site will be closed Jan. 1-2 for the New Year’s holiday and Jan. 15 for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, when City offices will be closed.

A drop-off box for string lights is located near the front doors of the Public Works building now through Jan. 31.

“We are proud to provide residents with a convenient and environmentally friendly way to clean up after the holidays,” said Chad Griffin, Department of Public Works director.

The tree recycling site is available to Kentwood residents only, and proof of residency is required. All decorations, lights, wires and other non-natural materials must be removed from the trees in advance.
