City of Evanston crews will pick up holiday trees beginning today through Friday, Jan. 26.

Trees will be picked up on the same day of the week as residents’ normal refuse and recycling collection.

All trees should be placed on the parkway, in between the street and the sidewalk. Trees will not be picked up from alleys or private property.

Residents are asked to remove all lights and decorations from trees, and to not place them in plastic bags. Those materials can damage equipment used to convert trees into mulch.
