How To Get Rid Of Your Real Christmas Tree In The Quad Cities
The holiday season has officially come to an end, a New Year is here, and it's time to get your home back to normal. If you're a family who traditionally puts up a real Christmas tree or maybe it's your first doing so, you're going to need a way to get rid of that tree. If you still need to dispose of your real Christmas tree, this is how you can do just that.
It's time to take down the Christmas decorations and get your house back to normal. While some of us have fake Christmas trees we have to somehow find room to store for next Christmas, others have real trees they can dispose of. If you're one of those Quad Citians that have a fake tree, this could be your last week to dispose of your real Christmas tree.
The City of Davenport and the City of Bettendorf reminded citizens of their respective cities that they have until January 7th, 2022, to dispose of their trees for free.
The City of Davenport announced that the curbside yard waste collection season ends this Friday, January 7th, and won't resume until April 4th. That means this week, before Friday, if you have a real Christmas tree you'll need to have that set out next to your garbage collection cans.
The City of Bettendorf put out a similar message about having your Christmas tree collected for free.
Officials from both Davenport and Bettendorf remind residents disposing of real trees must make sure the trees are free of plastic, ornaments, lights, and tree stands.
Those in Davenport and Bettendorf who miss the window to have their tree collected in front of their home can dispose of their tree at the Davenport Compost Facility located at 2606 Railroad St.
Bettendorf and Davenport residents can see when their normal trash and recycling collection days are here.
The City of Moline is also doing free disposal of real Christmas trees but residents of Moline have a little bit bigger of a window to place their real trees outside. Between Mondaty, January 3rd, and Friday, January 14th, residents of Moline can dispose of their real trees by also placing them next to their garbage collection bins on their normal trash collection day.
