NILES – The Niles Street Department will be collecting and recycling Christmas trees in the City of Niles beginning Monday, Jan. 7, weather permitting.
The crew will make just one trip through the entire city, beginning in the first ward and then continuing through the second, third and fourth wards.
Trees should be placed at the edge of the street and not in the street by no later than Sunday evening, Jan. 6.
Trees must be removed from plastic bags and must be completely stripped of all ornaments, lights and tree stands or they will not be picked up.
Citizens not wishing to discard their Christmas tree at this time can participate in the regular brush chipping program which will resume in late March.
