Christmas Tree Drop Off

December 20, 2016 10:00 AM
After Christmas, recycle your natural Christmas tree by bringing it to the Lowe's parking lot. The City of Galesburg, Lowe's, and Waste Management will sponsor a residential Christmas tree drop-off beginning Monday, December 26th through Thursday, January 5th. 
Residents must remove plastic bags, metal tree stands, lights and ornaments, as these items could severely damage the tub grinder used to chip the trees into compost. Flocked trees will not be accepted.
Galesburg residents may also place their Christmas trees at the curb for collection; however, these trees will be landfilled and not composted. 
As a reminder, Christmas wrapping paper is not accepted for collection in the City of Galesburg’s curbside recycling program.
