Christmas Tree Curb-Side Collection
Please place old, natural Christmas trees at the curb-side for collection by Town staff after Christmas. Trees will be collected as part of the Town's weekly yard debris collection service from all neighborhoods. (Trees may no longer be discarded at the former Merchants Park / new Welcome Center facility.)
Oceanfront residents are permitted to place old, natural Christmas trees in the dunes to promote sand accretion, and are welcome to collect their neighbors' old trees from the curb-side for placement in the dunes. Please be careful not to impede public access or vehicular access on the beach strand.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
We are all so blessed to be able to enjoy Emerald Isle!
