Holiday tree recycling

The Village’s refuse hauler will collect holiday trees during the weeks of January 4 and 11. Trees will be picked up at regular collection points on regularly scheduled days if they are free of decorations and stands.

Only residents with no alley should put trees at the curb. Since all trees collected are mulched at a licensed composting facility and used for soil enrichment, please do not leave them in plastic disposal bags. Wreaths and garlands cannot be collected for recycling because they contain wire — place them in the trash container.
