There will also be 23 designated locations to drop off Christmas trees throughout the city from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 9 and 16.

The Streets Department asks that residents untie the trees and remove all decorations. Christmas trees with decorations cannot be recycled.
For those that cannot participate in the recycling program, trees placed at the curb will be picked up on regularly scheduled collection day as trash.
