Holiday Waste Collection and Tree Disposal
There will be no garbage, yard waste, or recyclables collected on Tuesday, December 25, and Tuesday, January 1. All collections will be delayed one day for the remainder of the week.
The Citizen’s Convenience Center will close at 12:00 p.m. on Monday, December 24 and Monday, December 31.
Christmas Tree Disposal
Christmas trees will be accepted for curbside collection during the first two weeks of January. Trees should have all decorations removed and cut into four foot (4ft.) lengths. A single use waste sticker will not be necessary for Christmas trees during this two-week time frame.
Additionally, trees may be taken to the Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center and dropped off in the lower parking lot through Sunday, January 13. The trees must be completely clear of decorations - no lights, plastics, ornaments, flocking – and no plastic bags. Wreaths will not be accepted. Trees will be chipped and used on trails throughout the park. The nature center is located at 4500 Sioux River Road (Highway 12).
