Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Christmas Tree Pickup and Disposal

2011 Christmas Tree

2011 Christmas Tree

Thinking about taking down the tree?  Wondering how to dispose of your Christmas tree?  We’ve pulled together the Christmas tree disposal info for local towns.

The lyric “but it took so long to bake it…” keeps running through my head as I ponder dismantling the Christmas tree. But I’m determined to get it outside for the regular pickup rather than sticking it in the yard until spring as I so often do.  And at least this year we won’t be posing the trees in snow banks or waiting for the snowbank to melt and expose long since abandoned trees. Score one for global warming.

Remember: Trees must be bare – free of all decorations, tinsel and stand.  Do not put trees in plastic bags.  Wreaths cannot be mulched because of the wires and must be put in the trash.

    Belmont residents: Please note, according to the Belmont Public Works Dept., the trees will be sent to the incinerator with the rest of the garbage. They are NOT recycled for mulch — they are incinerated (for energy).
