The Public Works Department has designated Monday, January 9 and Monday, January 23, 2023 for its annual collection of Christmas trees. Residents who use the City's refuse and recycling system are eligible for this service and are asked to do the following:
- Attach a clear City yard waste bag (green bag is also acceptable) to the tree and make it clearly visible to collection crews. The bag can be tied to a branch or around the lower trunk.
- Place the tree in the normal refuse collection area by 6:00 a.m. on the pickup date.
- Remove all decorations or other attachments. Trees that have a tree stand, lights, decorations or any other attachment will not be picked up.
- Wreaths are not acceptable for recycling because they contain wire.
Questions can be directed to the Public Works Department at (320) 650-2900.
