Written by Dan Fischer on December 26, 2017
News Release: City of Batavia, Bureau of Maintenance
The City of Batavia will be picking up Christmas trees during the month of January as weather and operations permit.
Important information regarding Christmas tree removal:
- We can only pick up real trees. No artificial trees.
- Residents are to place trees in the parkway near the curb. Keep trees out of the roadway and clear of sidewalks.
- Residents placing trees out will strip the trees of all decorations, lights, stands and bags. These items damage chipping equipment. Contact your waste disposal company for information on the proper disposal of these items.
- If high winds are forecast, delay putting trees out until after winds have subsided. Trees in the road and across sidewalks are a hazards to motorists and pedestrians.
- Keep trees free of snow and ice so they are visible and do not become frozen to the ground.
- Please, have trees out for pick up before January 31 (Last day of pick-up).
