City offering tree pick up

The City of Garden City Parks Departments will be providing its annual free Christmas tree pick-up service on Wednesday, Jan. 2, through Friday, Jan. 4.

Discarded Christmas trees must be placed next to the curb in front of your residence before your scheduled pickup date.

Please do not put trees in the alley or your trash dumpster.

Trees should be free of tinsel, ornaments, and plastic tree bags. Flocked trees will not be picked up. Trees will be recycled to provide mulch for various plantings on City properties throughout Garden City.

Weather permitting, the Christmas tree curbside pick-up schedule is as follow:

  • January 2 – North of Kansas Avenue
  • January 3 – South of Kansas Avenue and West of Jennie Barker Road
  • January 4 – East of Jennie Barker Road and Chappel Heights

If you would like to dispose of your tree before your scheduled pick-up date, or if you miss your pick-up, you may take it to the marked location at the Kiddie Pond entrance gate south of the Zoo on Finnup Drive. The drop-off site will be marked with a sign and will be open from Dec. 26 through Sunday, January 6. After January 6, an appointment will be necessary to dump trees.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact the Parks Department at 620-271-1574.
