With the arrival of 2020, Sturgeon Bay residents will have about 19 disposal days to get rid of their Christmas trees with help from the city. The Sturgeon Bay Street Department says residents need to put their trees on the corners of the blocks nearest their homes for pick-up and transport to the compost yards. January 20th is the last day and Mike Barker, Municipal Services Director, says Christmas tree disposal mimics the Christmas shopping season.
Barker says residents must also remove tree stands and make sure their trees are free of wires used for decorating or supporting. That's because the trees are shredded for mulch in the Spring. So this season's Christmas trees could aid next summer's flower beds and shrubs.
