Holiday tree disposal available now

Post Date:12/21/2018 1:07 PM
When the holidays have come and gone, and it's time to un-deck the halls, Prairie Village residents have multiple options for live tree disposal. 

Republic Services will pick up live trees at the curbside for the first two weeks in January 2019. Trees taller than 6 feet must be cut in half prior to removal. The trees will be picked up with other compost/yard waste items on each resident’s typical trash pickup date. 

Additionally, the City sponsors a tree recycling program which runs through January 21. Trees can be placed in designated areas of Porter, Franklin, and Taliaferro Parks. Trees must be free of all lights, ornaments, stands, metal nails, etc. as these items will damage the chipping machine. Residents may take the chips for their own use.
