HOLDEN, Mass. — For residents looking to make short work of their Christmas trees, Holden's Department of Public Works will hold two chipping events on the first Saturdays in January.
This program is open to Holden residents only and is free of charge. Proof of residency may be required.
Only Christmas trees will be accepted, and all decorations, wire and objects must be removed from the trees.
No wreaths will be accepted, as they may contain wire. No storm debris will be accepted.
Anyone bringing brush or storm debris will be turned away, no exceptions.
The chippings will be held from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday Jan. 5 and Jan. 12 in the Adams Road DPW parking lot.
