City sets Christmas tree collection dates

Columbus city crews will pick up residential Christmas trees curbside beginning Dec. 26 on the day of trash collections for each city area.

Call-ins will not be accepted for Christmas trees, and collections will not be made on private streets.

Tree pickup will continue through Jan. 26.

All trees should not be in bags and must be free of ornaments, hooks, stands or nails. Trees should be placed at curbside by 7 a.m. on the customer’s trash day.
