Holiday tree pick ups begin Monday

Holiday trees will be picked up on regular trash and recycling collection days during the weeks of January 9 and 16. Trees should be placed in the regular collection area next to the refuse cart. Only residents with no alley should put trees at the curb. Since the trees are mulched, all tinsel, decorations and stands should be removed, and trees cannot be in plastic disposal bags. Wreaths and garlands are held together with wire and are not recyclable, so place them in the refuse cart. For more information call 708.358.5700 or e-mail

Residents have through this month to recycle their holiday lights by dropping them off from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Public Works Center, 201 South Blvd. Mini-lights, C7 lights, C9 lights, rope and LED lights, as well as extension cords, are acceptable.
