City offers tree disposal site

12/19/2013

Citizens are encouraged to bring Christmas trees to the free disposal site located north of the public works building at 1002 Vine. This area is next to the bathrooms at Speier ball fields. Place the trees inside the orange snow fence.

Signs will be posted to direct citizens. Remove all plastic, ornaments and lights before leaving the tree.

The disposal site will be open through Jan. 7.

Midwest Energy will provide personnel and a wood chipper to chip the trees into mulch. The mulch will be placed at the parks department on the U.S. Highway 183 Bypass and is available for pickup free of charge.

For more information, call the Solid Waste Division at (785) 628-7357.
