SIOUX CITY | Christmas trees will be accepted for curbside collection during the first two weeks of January, said Sioux City environmental services analyst Melissa Campbell.

Trees should have all decoration removed and should be cut into four-foot lengths. A single-use waste sticker will not be necessary for Christmas trees during this two-week time frame, Campbell said.

Additionally, trees may be taken to the Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center, 4500 Sioux River Road, and dropped off in the lower parking lot through Jan. 14. The trees must have all decorations removed in order to be accepted. Also, wreaths won't be accepted. Trees will be chipped and used on trails throughout the park.

Campbell reminds that all wrapping paper, gift boxes and cardboard are recyclable. Such items may be placed in your curbside recycle container. 

A recycle container may be requested free of charge by calling 712-279-0151. To request a magnet with recycling information, call 712-279-6222.
