Waste Management will pick up live trees and wreaths at your curb on January 2 and 9. If you’re going out of town and need to dispose of your tree before January, the Northfield Park District, in partnership with Nels Johnson Tree Care, offers a tree drop off in the Community Center parking lot from December 16 through January 5.
Trees must not be bagged and cannot be decorated or taller than six feet. Trees that are recycled will go to a composting or chipping facility, where they will produce a useful end-product.
Make sure to recycle your tree! Trees collected by Waste Management after the second week of January will be treated as trash and sent to a landfill.
