Christmas Tree Pickup across Tri-States

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Many of us are beginning to take down the Christmas Tree decorations and if your looking for a place to dispose of the tree once everything is put away, there are places to help.

Quincy Boy Scout Troop 25, along with Cub Scout Pack 1 will be collecting Christmas trees on January 5th.

Joe Henning with Troop 25 says all you have to do is call them…and they'll come pick it up and get rid of it for you.

"Leave us their name, address, telephone number, and that's really all we need...any special instructions that there might be. And, once I get the message I just enter them into the database and we pick them up on January 5th," said Henning.

Henning also said if you used their services last year, your information should already be in the database and someone will call to verify if you will need to use the service again this year.

The cost to pick up a tree is $10.  To schedule your pick up, call 217-222-6247.

For Macomb residents: Free Christmas tree pickup will take place during the first two weeks of January. Tree pickup will take place on the regular route day. Your asked to cut the lengths of 4 feet or less and place at the curb for disposal.

For Hannibal residents, all trees must be free of ornaments, tinsel and any other decorations. Hannibal residents can drop off their Christmas tree off at:

- Compost lot at 7th and Colfax

- Fire stations at Huckleberry Park and McMasters Avenue

- Hannibal City Yard Waste Lot
