Geneva residents will have several chances to dispose of their live Christmas trees during January.
Trees will be picked up for free on residents’ regular garbage collection day the weeks of Jan. 6 and Jan. 13 by Lakeshore Recycling Systems, the City’s waste hauler. People must place their live tree out with their garbage no later than 7 a.m. on their scheduled day. No refuse sticker will be required during this timeframe.
Lakeshore’s collection will continue the week of Jan. 20, 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 will not be accepted.
All wreaths and roping must be discarded with the regular trash.
