We thought neighbors would appreciate some info on the pick up of Christmas trees. The Department of Public Works is now picking up trees and wreaths and will re-purpose them into compost until Friday January 27th. Additional info from DPW:
Remove all ornaments
Place the greenery where you place your trash and recycling for collection, next to curb (treebox area) for collection
Do not put the trees in plastic or cloth bags
If you aren’t able to get your tree out by the 27th, it will be collected as regular garbage is, as space is available in trash trucks in the weeks following. If you are like us, and normally put your trash in an alley, not a tree box, I would go with the tree box in front of your house anyway. We have done that for years and tree has always been picked up.
