Recycle the Christmas Tree

When it's time to dispose of the Christmas tree, think about recycling it. Between January 2 and 31, 2013, trees can be brought to these designated collection points for recycling as mulch that will nourish plantings in Glenview parks:
  • Glenview Public Works Service Center , 1333 Shermer Road
  • Johns Park, 2101 Central Road
  • Flick Park, 3600 Glenview Road
  • Cunliff Park, 540 Echo Lane
  • Cole Park, 1031 Kenilworth Avenue
  • Willow Park, 2600 Greenwood Avenue
Residents in single-family homes or duplexes served by Groot can put the trees, wreaths and garlands out with the regular garbage during the week of January 7-11, 2013. Groot will collect them at no additional charge.

All ornaments, lights and tinsel should be removed from trees. Do NOT cover the tree with a plastic disposal bag.

And remember: Holiday Lights can also be recycled. Drop them off in the marked receptacle outside the Public Works Service Center, 1333 Shermer Road, through February 28.
