Christmas tree drop-off sites open after Christmas

Properties paying the “Solid Waste” fee on their monthly bills are eligible to use the Christmas tree drop-off sites. Owners and tenants of properties not paying the fee should contact their regular waste hauler for service. These sites are supported by fees, not taxes.

Beginning Dec. 26 and continuing through Jan. 14, there will be two (2) drop-off sites available for Christmas tree disposal.

Site one is located at the west end of the Lakeview Arena parking lot at 401 E. Fair Ave.
