MADISON (WKOW) -- from City of Madison: Starting Monday, the Streets Division will begin collecting Christmas trees.
All trees will be processed at the curb with on-street chippers.
These machines are expensive and can be damaged when foreign material enters the machine.
To protect this equipment and the safety of our workers, the city has asked that residents follow these rules:
These items should be placed with your tan refuse cart.
Each neighborhood is scheduled for two collections.
Regardless of which day your refuse is collected, the city asks that you have your holiday tree out by 7:00 a.m. on the following days: January 5th and January 20th.
Trees placed out on these days will be collected sometime during the two-week cycle, weather permitting.
Snow and ice control will take priority.
