Christmas Tree Disposal

  • December 27, 2017


Auburn Public Services Director Dan Goyette announces several options for the disposal of Christmas trees.

Trees can be dropped off by Auburn residents at the following locations:
• Public Works Garage – 296 Gracelawn Road (behind the community sand shed)
• Mid-Maine Waste Action Corporation/MMWAC – Goldthwaite Road (Monday - Friday, 7:00AM to 4:00PM & Saturday, 7:00AM to 12:00PM)
• Engine 2 Fire Station – 181 South Main Street (next to the community sandbox)

The City of Auburn will not be doing curbside pick-up of Christmas trees, however local Boy Scout Troop 121 will pick-up Christmas trees on the weekend of January 9/10 for a minimum donation of $5. Trees should not be placed curbside until the morning of January 9.

Money raised by this program goes directly to the troop’s scouting activities. Troop 121 was created to help give youth with special physical, mental and emotional challenges the opportunity for success in a safe scouting environment that builds character, encourages citizenship, teaches life skills and develops personal fitness.

To request pick-up, Auburn citizens should send their $5 minimum donation no later than January 7 to:

United Methodist Church
Attn: Boy Scout Troop 121
439 Park Avenue
Auburn, ME 04210

The troop will send participants a tag to attach to their tree prior to placing it curbside. For more information about this program or Troop 121, please call (207) 783-0790. This is not a city-sponsored pick-up program.
