Christmas Tree Pickup
Christmas trees will be picked up from the curbside for shredding, chipping, and composting beginning January 4, 2021 through January 18, 2021. After January 18, 2021, a $2.25 refuse sticker will be required to ensure collection.
Please remove everything from trees, including plastic bags, wraps, ornaments, tinsel, wires, and the stand, as these will clog and damage the shredder. If you have questions about the program, please call 847-716-3568.
