Christmas tree disposal offered through January 15

Edwardsville residents wishing to dispose of their Christmas tree through regular trash collection service should either cut the tree into 4-foot sections and bundle it or cut it and place it into yard-waste bags.

We don't mean to be taking away from the spirit of Christmas already, but anyone out there who happens to have a real tree in their home is probably already noticing the number of pine needles that they're cleaning up on a daily hourly rate. Collection will take place January 2-5 and residents are asked to put their tree, stripped of all decorations, out on January 2.

It's important that lights, ornaments, tinsel, plastic and the stand be removed from all the trees being dropped off.
