don't trash that tree!

Are you thinking about taking down that Christmas tree and disposing of it now that the needles are dropping? Don't toss it in the trash. From now thru 1/17, you can take it to one of the following locations to be recycled:

Warren Park, 6601 N. Western
North Park Village, 5801 N. Pulaski
Margate Park, 4921 N. Marine Dr.
Lincoln Park, Cannon Dr. at Fullerton (parking lot East of Cannon Dr.)

Trees will be chipped and turned into mulch. Free mulch will be available to residents at the same sites beginning Friday 1/8.

For additional info on recycling drop-off locations, call 311.

I visited the tree recycling location at Warren Park, 6601 N. Western (Western and Albion) yesterday.

There were roughly forty trees in a stack bound by fencing.

This is a great idea!

Forty trees - that's excellent!
