ALGONQUIN – With the holiday season coming to an end, Groot will collect Christmas trees in January for Algonquin residents.

Groot will collect Christmas trees at no charge on residents’ normal collection day throughout the month, according to a news release from the village.

Trees must be placed at the curb or the end of the driveway by 7 a.m. on the scheduled collection day. All lights and decorations must be removed, according to the release.

Trees should not be placed in plastic bags, and any trees taller than 6 feet should be cut in half so one person can handle them.

Residents should place trees on top of the snow, and any tree buried under snow might not be collected.

Questions should be directed to Groot’s customer service team at 800-244-1977.
