Last chance to have tree picked up
The week of Jan. 14 is the last opportunity to have holiday trees picked up by the Village of Oak Park’s waste hauler. Trees will be picked up on regular trash and recycling collection days, but only through Jan. 18. Trees should be placed in the regular collection area next to the refuse cart. Only residents with no alley should put trees at the curb. Since the trees are mulched, all tinsel, decorations and stands should be removed and trees should not be in plastic disposal bags.
Wreaths and garlands are held together with wire and are not recyclable, so place them in the refuse cart.
For more information call (708) 358-5700 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
