GOSHEN Christmas tree removal begins

Goshen Christmas tree pickup begins next week.
Posted on Dec. 28, 2012 at 12:00 a.m.

The Goshen Street Department will begin collecting Christmas trees Wednesday.

After removing the tree stand and all lights and decorations, residents may place their tree by the street curb for collection. No artificial trees will be removed and no collections will be made from city alleys.

Collection will run from Jan. 2 to Jan. 18, but snow events will take precedence over tree pickup.

Residents wishing to dispose of their tree after Jan. 18 may take them to the Environmental Center at North Indiana Avenue and C.R. 19, Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Trash removal service will not take discarded trees.
