Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS) will collect, transport, and dispose of holiday trees left curbside and free of decorations by all customers on their primary collection day, now through January 25. A sticker is not required. Contact LRS at 773.685.8811 with questions.
Residents may also drop off trees free of decorations, wires, or other recycling materials by the Park District through January 23. Drop-off locations are in posted areas of parking lots at Larry Fink Park, 1377 Deer Creek Parkway, and Danny Cunniff Park, 2700 Trailway. Park District crews chip the trees for use as mulch. Residents are welcome to use the mulch for their own gardens and landscapes. Contact Dan Voss, Director of Parks, at 847.579.3130 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Holiday lights may be recycled at the Highland Park Recycling Center, open every Tuesday and the first Saturday of the month from 7 AM – 1 PM, at 1180 Half-Day Road.
