Christmas Tree Drop-Off

The Parks and Recreation Department conducts a Christmas tree recycling program each January. The trees will be made into wood chips rather than being added to the landfill thus saving landfill tipping fees.

Drop-Off Locations

Residents should recycle Christmas trees by taking them to any one of the following locations through January:

  • Bayside Park (Bay Boulevard, Ortley)
  • Bey Lea Park (Tennis Court and Parking Lot)
  • Chadwick Beach Park (Strickland Boulevard)
  • Money Island Park (Longfellow Avenue)
  • Riverwood Park (Riverwood Avenue)
  • Silverton Park (Maine Street)
  • Skyview Park (Vaughn Avenue)
  • Toms River Township Recycling Center (Church Road)
  • Winding River Park - South (Off Route 37 West)

Curbside Collection

The Public Works Department will collect Christmas trees after the Parks and Recreation recycling program is completed. Curb side tree collection will take place from January 20th through January 31st. After January 31st, all trees must be dropped off at our Recycling Convenience Center on Church Road.
