Christmas Tree Recycling or Disposal

January 2, 2019 -- Ready to remove your Christmas tree? Highland Park residents may dispose of Christmas trees on their primary refuse collection day. Lakeshore Recycling Systems will collect, transport, and dispose of trees left curbside by all customers between January 2 through January 25, 2021. A sticker is not required. Please contact Lakeshore Recycling Systems at 773.685.8811 with questions.

Residents may also drop off trees free of decorations, wires or any other materials for recycling by the Park District of Highland Park through January 24, 2021. 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. Please contact Dan Voss, Director of Parks, at 847.579.3130 or for more information.
