Starting Monday, Dec. 28, Evanston residents can place their Christmas trees on the parkways in front of residences for recycling. For five consecutive weeks, tree pickups will take place on the same day as a resident’s normal garbage and recycling collections. To accommodate those who like to have their trees up for a while, recycling will continue through the week of Jan. 25. After that week, trees will no longer be recycled.
Trees intended for recycling must be placed on parkways; they will not be picked up from alleys or private property. Do not place trees in plastic bags, and remember to remove all lights and decorations. For more information, call 847-866-2912.
