Towns Set Guidelines, Schedules for Tree Pickup

Byline: Gala M. Pierce Daily Herald Staff Writer

The gifts have been opened, the eggnog finished. Strands of tinsel and pine needles litter the carpet.

As much as you might want to hold onto the holiday a little longer, it's not too early to think about cleaning up a bit.

The public works departments in Batavia, Geneva and St. Charles have set their schedules for Christmas tree pickups.

In addition, Tri-Cities residents will be offered free wood chips from their public works department.

Batavia

The city of Batavia will begin pickup the week of Jan. 5 east of Fox River. Tree pickup will continue through February.

For details, call (630) 879-1424.

Here's the schedule:

- Pickup will begin Jan. 12 for areas west of the Fox River between Route 38 and Union Pacific railroad tracks; and areas west of the Fox River and south of the Union Pacific railroad tracks. …
