City of Evanston crews will pick up holiday trees beginning Monday, December 29, 2014 through Friday, February 6, 2015.
The six-week window provides residents with the flexibility to take down their trees when it’s convenient. Trees will be picked up on the same day of the week as residents’ normal refuse and recycling collection.
All trees should be placed on the parkway, in between the street and the sidewalk. Trees will not be picked up from alleys or private property. Residents are asked to remove all lights and decorations from trees, and to not place them in plastic bags. These materials can damage equipment used to convert trees into mulch.
For more information, please call/text 847-448-4311. For convenience, residents can also dial 3-1-1 in Evanston.
