Christmas trees will be collected on one date this year. The trees should be placed at the curbside prior to 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday, January 12, 2011. If the tree is over 6 feet tall, please cut in half before placing on curb.
Tree stands, nails or metal fasteners, wire, tinsel, and plastic bags must be removed from the tree. Roping or wreaths that contain wire must be placed in regular garbage or taken to a disposal site at 14th Street NE and Elm Drive by Wednesday, January 12.
Flocked trees cannot be picked up. Residents may take them to a disposal site at 14th Street NE and Elm Drive by Wednesday, January 12.
**As a reminder, residents are asked to place their garbage and recyclable containers or bags either on the driveway or closer to the ground, not on top of a snow bank, if possible. If there is snow accumulation at the location where you place your containers for pick-up, citizens are encouraged to shovel out a small area to place their containers closer to the ground.
If there are any questions, contact the Sanitation Division at 421-3691.
