Time to toss out your Christmas tree

Jan. 11, 2010

Christmas trees must be placed along the edge of the street or curb no later than Jan. 24 for the Public Works Department to pick them up

Discarded Christmas trees must be clean of all decorations, lights, stands, tinsel, garland, wire, plastic bags, etc. The village chips the trees and recycles them as mulch and compost.

Christmas wreaths are not eligible for pick-up under this program. Wreaths must be disposed of with regular trash.

Waste Management will not pick up discarded Christmas trees as part of the weekly garbage collection.
