Bristol collecting Christmas trees until Jan. 15


Bristol’s compost facility is collecting natural Christmas trees for Bristol residents. To dispose of a tree, residents are asked to place it on the sidewalk on the same day as their regularly scheduled trash pick-up. Trees will be collected as long as they are free of any ornaments and not wrapped in a plastic bag.

Trees will be picked up through Jan. 15. To have a Christmas tree picked up after Jan. 15, residents must call the compost facility at 253-8877 to request pick-up.

Jim McGaw

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
