The City once again offered a free Holiday Tree Collection Program for all residential properties within the City’s corporate limits. Those wishing to participate simply had to leave their undecorated trees at the curb by Monday, January 7, for Public Works crews to collect. The Forestry Section led the program and picked up 1,200 trees Citywide. The trees will be chipped and made into mulch.
Residents may also take their holiday trees to the Landscape Recycling Center at 1210 E. University Avenue, Urbana (217-344-5323) during the months of January and February for free disposal.
