Christmas decoration disposal

Please burn or place in plastic bags Wreaths, swags and Christmas trees

As you may have heard, an invasive species of beetle has been found on some Christmas decorations imported from the Mid-Atlantic states. These items were sold at local big box stores and stores around the state. Most of the affected items were decorative wreathes and swags, which would be landfilled regardless. The latest information from the DNR says trees are not affected; however, DATCP has not changed their disposal guidance.
