[ARCHIVED] Christmas Tree Collection Scheduled For January

Chrstmas Tree Disposal

Geneva residents will have several opportunities to dispose of their live Christmas trees during January.

Trees will be picked up on residents’ garbage collection day the weeks of Dec. 31 and Jan. 7 by Lakeshore Recycling Systems, the City’s waste hauler. People must place their live tree at the curb no later than 7 a.m. on their scheduled day. No refuse sticker for the tree will be required during this timeframe.

Lakeshore’s collection will continue the week of Jan. 14, but residents will need to use a refuse sticker to have their tree removed.

Ornaments, hooks, nails, tinsel, garland, tree stands and other hard materials should be removed from the trees prior to disposal. Trees placed in bags at the curb will not be accepted.

All wreaths and roping must be discarded with the regular trash.

Garbage collection the week of Dec. 31 will be pushed back one day to Friday and Saturday, Jan. 4-5 due to the New Year’s Day holiday. The normal Thursday-Friday schedule will resume the following week.
