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.
