Christmas Tree Collection Dates Announced

This year, the City of Champaign Christmas Tree Collection program will run from Monday, January 4, 2016, through Friday, January 15, 2016. This collection is available to all residential properties in the City of Champaign within City limits. This program provides an opportunity for residents to recycle their natural Christmas tree at no charge.
City residents may participate by placing their tree within four feet of the curb by 6 a.m. on their scheduled collection date. Residents should refer to the map and schedule below to determine their collection days.
Participants will need to remove decorations, stands, and plastic bags before setting their tree out for collection. The collected trees are taken to the Landscape Recycling Center where they are chipped and made into garden mulch. Any foreign objects left on the trees may be missed and could contaminate the mulch.
Additional information on this program can be found on the City’s website: Any questions about the program can be answered by calling Public Works at 217.403.4700.
Trees may also be taken to the Landscape Recycling Center at 1210 E. University Avenue in Urbana for free disposal during the month of January. Residents may call the Center at 217.344.5323 with any questions regarding operating hours.Collection Zones - Tree Collection Collection Dates - Tree Collection
