Dispose of your tree and be a friend to the environment at the same time. The city of Mercer Island’s annual holiday tree chipping service will be in full swing starting Saturday, Dec. 26th. The service, offered to city residents, runs until January 10, 2010. The chipped wood is then used through out Mercer Island, at the city parks, trails and island open spaces.
Residents can bring undecorated Christmas trees, which have not been sprayed with flocking, to Mercer Island’s Maintenance Shop, located at 9601 SE 36th St. Trees will be accepted during daylight hours only.
If you have any questions about the chipping program, please give Mercer Island’s Maintenance Department a call at 206-275-7608.
