The City of Mexico will take the burden away from people who have live Christmas trees and aren’t sure what to to with them.

The Public Works Department will pick up live trees within the city limits on January 8-11. To arrange for pick up, call city hall at 581-2100, extension 315 anytime before January 8 to provide an address where the tree is to be picked up.

Trees should have all lights, ornaments, tinsel and other decorations removed prior to placing them out at the curb for pickup.

If it snows on these dates, alternate dates may be used for the pickup, but it is not necessary for residents to call city hall again.
