The city will pickup Christmas trees at the curb on trash pickup and recycling days between Jan. 3 and 27.

Here are the pickup rules:

  • Trees must be free of all lights and decorations and be placed on the parkways in front of residences.
  • Do not put trees into plastic bags.
  • Trees placed in alleys will not be picked up.

For large multi-family buildings that cannot accommodate a
large number of trees in front of their properties, please call the Parks/Forestry office at (847) 866-2912 to schedule a special pickup.

All refuse pickups are one day later the first week because of the City’s New Year’s Day observance on Monday, Jan. 2.
