Christmas Tree Disposal

Do you know the proper way to throw out a real Christmas tree? Can it be put in an alley next to the garbage/recycling cans?

My neighbor asked me this question and I'm curious what the answer is.

  • Holly 15 year East Lakeview Resident.

    I live in the Dakota building and we had 5 trees thrown in the alley. They sat there for weeks. If you are gonna buy a tree be responsible and know how to dispose of it properly.

  • Hopefully everyone can recycle their tree this year. One spot in North Center:

    January 7 and 14, Sunday
    9: AM – 4: PM
    Northcenter Town Square, 4100 N Damen Avenue

    I live on a block where we have many 2 or three flats and very few one family homes. There is one house with 5 cars that when someone takes off with their car they move another up to hold parking space. If two cars leave they move another effectively holding 4 parking spaces. I think of myself as a nice guy so I really dont care MOST of the time. It does get out of hand when I have to park around the block every day. What can I do? I dont like my wife returning in the dark and have to park a half block or so away knowing there should be 2 to 3 more spaces.

    The local news just reported another incident of this guy yesterday at Foster and Kedzie. They showed a picture from behind - wearing black winter jacket with red trim and it says Chicago on the back, should be pretty easy to identify so be on the lookout for this serial groper who obviously is riding on the sidewalk when these incidents occur - it will be difficult to apprehend him but keep yourself safe by being ready to avoid/confront him and hopefully one of these days the police will be able to catch up with him.
