(WLNS) – Christmas has come and gone and now it’s time to take down the tree. If you have a live cut tree there are some options, depending upon where you live, for disposing of the tree.
The City of Lansing will collect holiday trees beginning the week of December 29th and continue through the week of January 5, 2015.
Trees should be placed curbside on the same day that blue trash bags, blue trash carts and green recycling carts are collected. They should be free of plastic bags, metal, and ornaments. TREES 6-FEET IN LENGTH OR LONGER MUST BE CUT IN HALF. To assist in the collection process in the event of snow, residents are encouraged to place holiday trees on top of snow banks, and to remove as much snow as possible from the trees so City drivers can see them.
For more information, contact Capital Area Recycling & Trash at 517/483-4400 or firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://www.lansingrecycles.com
