Christmas Tree Collections Begin In Madison | Shopping & Services
Starting Jan. 3, the Madison Streets Department will begin collecting Christmas trees. Trees will be processed at the curb with on-street chippers, officials said.
Officials urge residents to make sure the trees are completely free of all decorations. They said the expensive chippers can be damaged if foreign objects are forgotten on the trees.
Residents should put the trees at the edge of the street. If trees are buried in snow, residents need to dig the trees out. Tree stands must be removed along with decorations and tree bags, officials said.
Wreaths, evergreen rope, garlands and boughs will not be collected by the city.
The first round of collection will begin on Tuesday, Jan. 3 with the second round of collection stating on Tuesday, Jan. 17.
