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.
