The City of New Ulm will again be picking up and disposing of residents’ used Christmas trees free of charge this season. City street department crews will pick up trees left on the boulevard area of the intersection nearest your home through the month of January. Trees should be free of any tinsel, ribbon, wire, ornaments and plastic bags before being left on the boulevard. They should also be kept away from fire hydrants. The City of Redwood Falls will also be disposing of trees. They will be picked up on Monday, January 6th only, and should be placed in the location where normal garbage pickup occurs. Trees may be disposed of at the city burn site in Redwood Falls as well.
