From there the county will take those dead trees and break them down, turning them into compost. “The compost will be available to all residents in the Spring,” Brewer said. “It’s meant for just residential purposes and you can come pick it up any time in the spring,” said Brewer. “There’s two drop offs for the county,” said Jessica Brewer, Materials Recovery Manager for Broome County. “You can come to the landfill directly and we have a roll off bin or you can take it to Grippen Park” Brewer said. Brewer also says to make sure your tree hasn’t been treated with chemicals, and is real, before dropping it off.
