Ho­li­day tree pick ups

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

It’s be­gin­ning to look a lot like the end of the ho­li­day sea­son and ma­ny mu­ni­ci­pa­li­ties are gea­ring up to help re­si­dents dis­pose of Ch­rist­mas trees in en­vi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly ways. Most towns will take a few weeks to com­plete pick-up of na­tu­ral trees and ask re­si­dents to en­sure that all lights, or­na­ments, tin­sel and such are clea­red from­trees before they are left for dis­po­sal.

St. La­zare

The town is of­fe­ring a one time on­ly pi­ckup be­gin­ning Ja­nua­ry 11 that is ex­pec­ted to last ap­proxi­ma­te­ly two weeks.

Since town of­fi­cials will not ad­ver­tise where the pick-up will be­gin, re­si­dents with trees to dis­pose of should leave them by the side of the road before 7 a.m. on Ja­nua­ry 11, or risk­mis­sing their turn.

Pu­blic works em­ployees say trees should be pla­ced on the side of a dri­ve­way, ra­ther than on snow mounds, as mu­ni­ci­pal em­ployees as­si­gned to pi­cking up trees are al­so as­si­gned to snow clea­ring.

For in­for­ma­tion or ques­tions, call the mu­ni­ci­pal ga­rage at 450 455-4664.

Ste. Anne de Bel­le­vue

Tree pick-up in Ste. Anne de Bel­le­vue got un­der­way yes­ter­day and will conti­nue through Ja­nua­ry 19.

To contri­bute to hou­se­hold waste re­duc­tion, na­tu­ral Ch­rist­mas trees will be pi­cked-up and chip­ped, say of­fi­cials.

Pin­court

Pu­blicWorks em­ployees be­gan col­lec­ting ho­li­day trees in Pin­court from the side of the road yes­ter­day and will conti­nue to do so un­til Ja­nua­ry 15.

The town says people who do not get their trees out by the road by the end of the col­lec­tion can call for re­mo­val af­ter Ja­nua­ry 15 by dial­ling 514 453-8981, ex­ten­sion 5.

Vau­dreuil-Do­rion

In Vau­dreuil-Do­rion, na­tu­ral ho­li­day trees will be re­mo­ved and chip­ped from Ja­nua­ry 11 to Ja­nua­ry 15.
