Merry Mulch: Drop off trees for free

The Rutland County Solid Waste District will accept real Christmas/holiday trees for free drop-off from residents of district towns. Trees must not carry tinsel, ornaments, spray snow and any other non-compostable material.

This program runs from the day after Christmas through the second Saturday in January (Jan. 11). After that date, or for out-of-district residents, trees and brush are $5 for a pickup truck load.

The Regional Transfer Station is located at 14 Gleason Road in Rutland. The regular hours are Monday - Saturday, 7 AM - 3 PM. Call us or visit our website for holiday hours: (802) 775-7209

Turn your trees into food!

You can also drop off your fresh-cut, clean christmas trees at Cracked an Egg Farm- 191 Newton Road, Brandon. They have sheep that eat the needles right off the tree as a healthy snack! Make sure to bring them by during daylight hours, as the farm dog is free at night to keep predators away.
No tinsel, fake snow, ornaments, or stands attached
