The City of University Park reminds residents how to recycle Christmas trees properly this year:
The Sanitation Division will pick up discarded trees on scheduled collection days from front curbsides. Before setting your tree out for collection, remove the tree’s stand and all ornaments, lights, tinsel and plastic.
If you live south of Lovers Lane, collection is free if the tree is at the curb by Jan. 10. For residents who live north of Lovers Lane, collection is free through Jan. 11. After those dates, there is a $10 collection fee. For more information, call the Sanitation Division at 214-987-5451, or dial 3-1-1.
