FREE Christmas tree collections are scheduled for Friday, January 8 & Friday, January 15, along with regular refuse collection within the Village, for residential properties with no more than 3 units.
Trees must be stripped of all decorations and placed at the curb with the cut end facing the street. Trees do not have to be cut up, bundled or placed in yard waste bags. Trees/greenery in plastic bags, wrapped in plastic or covered with artificial snow cannot be accepted. Garlands and wreaths must be disassembled, and the organic portion placed in a yard waste bag.
If you live in a building with more than three units, contact your building owner or refuse hauler regarding Christmas tree disposal, or recycle it at the Dundee Township Highway Commission Garage at 1900 Sleepy Hollow Rd (at Rte 72) until about January 15. Watch for signs in the area, or call Highway Commissioner Larry Braasch at 847-426-0898 for more information.
