City Sanitation Department announces dates for Christmas tree pickup

Bloomington, Ind. - The City of Bloomington Sanitation Department will begin picking up live Christmas trees and wreaths on Monday, January 6th through Monday, January 20th.

City residents may place their wreaths and trees at the curb for collection on regular yard waste and recycling collection days. All decorations and lights must be removed and the wreaths and trees may not be in plastic bags. Items should be placed at the curb by 5 a.m. on collection day.

The Sanitation Department would also like to remind residents that composting and mulching are the greenest ways to both reduce waste and create useful fertilizer for your yard. It's natural, easy, requires almost no maintenance and can be done in any number of ways.

For questions regarding Christmas tree pickup procedures, please contact Office Manager Rhea Carter at 349.3443. You may also visit the City's sanitation web page at www.bloomington.in.gov/sanitation.
