The City will provide Christmas tree drop-off sites from Christmas Day through Tuesday, January 21 at these locations:
All decorations, tinsel, lights, skirts, disposal bags and stands must be removed from trees. This is the 33rd year for the City's tree drop-off service, the oldest program of its kind in the state. The effort is a collaboration between the Solid Waste Operations Division of the Transportation and Utilities Department and the Parks and Recreation Department.
Boy Scout Troop 8 offers a service to pick up trees and transport them to a City drop-off site. Pick up dates are December 28, 29 and January 1, 4, 5 and 11, offered in these zip code areas: 68502 through 68508, 68510, 68512, 68516, 68521, 68522 and 68526. Trees should be placed on the front lawn by 9 a.m. The service is free, but donations are appreciated. Schedule a pickup by contacting Troop 8 at scouting4trees.org or 402-965-1458.
Residents also can contact their refuse haulers regarding tree collection. More information on the City recycling program is available at recycle.lincoln.ne.gov or by calling the Recycling Hotline at 402-441-8215.
