The four-week window provides residents with the flexibility to take down their trees when it’s convenient. Trees will be picked up on the same day of the week as residents’ normal refuse and recycling collection.

Tree collection guidelines

  • 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.
  • Do not place trees in plastic bags.
  • Remove all lights and decorations from trees. These materials can damage equipment used to convert trees into mulch.

For more information, please call or text 847-448-4311. For convenience, local residents can also dial 311 in Evanston.
