CITY OF WHEATON: Christmas Tree Recycling Offered during Weeks of Dec. 31 & Jan. 7
City of Wheaton issued the following announcement on Dec. 26.
The City's garbage/recycling hauler will pick up live Christmas trees for recycling on your collection day during the weeks of Dec. 31, 2018, and Jan. 7, 2019, at no charge, with no sticker needed. Please note that because there is no pickup on Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2019, (due to the New Year's Day holiday), pickups for Jan. 1-4 will be one day later than usual.
During this free two-week collection period, place your tree at the curb, and make sure trees are free of all decorations and are not in plastic bags. After the collection period, you will need to attach 1 garbage/organic sticker to a live Christmas tree in order to have it collected.
The City would like to remind you that yard waste pickup has concluded until spring. The City’s waste hauler is unable to collect yard waste/organics/food scraps at this time, as its collection facilities will not accept materials this time of year. Yard waste/organics/food scraps collection will resume the week of April 1, 2019.
