The Village will be accepting Fresh-Cut Christmas Trees for Recycling from January 1 – 15, 2017.
Fresh-cut trees (artificial trees are not accepted) can be dropped off at the collection site, located in the Southwest corner of the old JC Penney parking lot at the former Machesney Park Mall. Access to the site can be done via Roosevelt Road to Velocity Drive or through the entrance near Associated Bank on Roosevelt Road just west of the 251 intersection. Signs will be posted and a green fence corral will be created to house the trees throughout the collection process.
Please DO NOT drop off your tree at the former collection site behind Village Hall. Signs will be posted instructing residents of the change in location and we ask that anyone wishing to take part in tree recycling do so respectfully by dropping off their tree in the proper location.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the tree recycling, please contact Village Hall at 815-877-5432.
