Christmas tree collections start today; trash routes delayed

Christmas trees will be picked up by crews in the city of Columbus starting today. The city’s department of public works says that you can have your tree curbside on the same day as your regular trash collections. That will only be on public streets and not in alleys. All trees must be out of a bag and free of ornaments, hooks, stands or nails. Christmas tree pickup runs through Friday, Jan. 24th.

Because of the Christmas holiday, trash/compost/recycling & brush collections in Columbus are running one day behind with Wednesday’s collections today, normal Thursday collections on Friday and Friday’s collections on Saturday.
