Christmas Recycling

Village of Plainfield residents with Waste Management Garbage Service – After the holiday, Waste Management will pick up live Christmas trees and decorative greenery on your regular refuse collection day. Trees should be bundled properly and placed at the curb. Larger trees must be cut so each piece is four feet or shorter in length and width, tied with string, and weigh 50 pounds or less. Call 815-436-7093 for more information.

Park District – Has a drop off location for live Christmas trees at their maintenance facility on Lockport Street and the Frontage Road next to Four Seasons Park and I55. Call 815-436-8812 for more information.

Plainfield Public Library Holiday Lights Recycling Program - The Library is partnering with Elgin Recycling, to offer holiday lights recycling! While putting up your holiday decorations, you are bound to come across lights that no longer work; now you can be green and recycle them, earning funds for the Library to offer other green programs and events. Dec 1st - Feb 28th.
