City of Champaign set their tree pick up date for January 11th

If you have a real tree in your house this year — and you’re a Champaign resident —, put January 11th on your calendar. That is the day to put that tree out on your curb by 6 a.m. for pick up. Here is what you need to know:

  • Collected trees are chipped and made into garden mulch.
  • Trees with stands, decorations, tinsel, lights, artificial snow/frost, plastic bags, or any other materials that make the trees non-recyclable will not be collected

If you miss it, you can take your tree to the Landscape Recycling Center in Urbana throughout the months of January and February.
