Christmas Tree Recycling Program Dec 28 2017 / Bryan Shupe

Beginning Jan. 8, Christmas trees will be picked up for free during weekly trash and recycling collection in Aurora.

Christmas tree recycling containers will be provided at each of these locations. Finally, those with Friday garbage collection will have their trees collected on the fourth week of the month.

Citizens and businesses can drop off live Christmas trees, wreaths and garland for recycling at the City's Curry Environmental Services facility at 3440 Kauloosa Ave.

For example, if your collection day is normally on a Monday, collection during the Holiday week will be on a Tuesday.

Flocked trees can not be picked up. Flocked trees accepted. Drop off trees through January 12 at City Hall, 635 Highway 101 S, and La Colonia Park, 715 Valley Ave.

The recycled trees will be composted or used to improve fish habitat.

Tree drop-off program will end January 15, but residents may still drop off trees after this date at the transfer station or landfill during normal operating hours.

Korpi reminds residents in Muscatine and Fruitland that all decorations must be removed from the tree, the tree must be removed the stand and NOT placed in a plastic bag, and the three must be placed at the curb where the residents trash is collected.

All of the trees collected by the Public Works Department will be donated to the Gateway Streetscape Foundation, a Henry County program that helps create and maintain an attractive and clean community, encourages economic development and tourism, promotes community pride, improves the community's image and provides a desirable place to live, work and play. "We need to take those Christmas trees and make wonderful mulch out of them". Trees will not be accepted from commercial haulers or tree vendors without prior approval.

Last year, San Francisco recycled 498 tons of Christmas trees according a Recology release.

Raphael also stressed that Christmas trees should not go into the compost bin. Cabela's has a sign set up in the right-hand corner of its parking lot to direct people on where to drop their trees.

To participate in the program, residents are asked to place their undecorated trees on the curb in front of their homes.

That includes gift bags, foil, shiny or glitter wrapping paper.
