Batavia residents will have two opportunities to dispose of their live Christmas trees. Trees will be picked up for free on residents’ garbage days during the weeks of Dec. 26 and Jan. 2 by Waste Management, the city’s waste hauler. No refuse stickers are necessary during this timeframe.
After these dates, residents should attach a refuse sticker to the tree and place it at the curb on their regular collection date. All materials such as plastic bags, ornaments, lights, nails, etc. should be removed from the trees. Live wreaths and garlands should be placed in the regular refuse.
