One More Week for Free Christmas Tree Recycling

If you receive service from the City's garbage hauler, Lakeshore Recycling Systems, crews will pick up live Christmas trees for recycling on your collection day during the first two weeks of January at no charge and with no sticker needed. Place your tree at the curb, and make sure trees are free of all decorations and are not in plastic bags. After the collection period, you will need to attach 1 garbage/organic sticker to a Christmas tree to have it collected.

Prevent Frozen Pipes

Do you know how to prevent water pipes in your home from freezing? Here are some tips:

  • Make sure to insulate pipes in unheated areas or against outside walls and seal any leaks that may let cold air in.
  • Keep your garage door closed if your water meter is in that area.
  • Disconnect your garden hose and shut off the water supply to outside faucets.
  • If the temperature gets extremely cold, open cabinet doors under sinks to allow heat to get to pipes and let a faucet drip at a trickle if possible.
Questions may be directed to the City of Wheaton Water Division at 630-260-2090.
