Merry Mulch Collection

Now that Christmas is over some of us may be wondering what to do with that Christmas tree. Dubuque’s public works department is again sponsoring its’ Merry Mulch Christmas tree collection and composting program. Solid waste bags, bundles and containers, as well as Green Carts with food scraps will also be collected on regular collection days for two weeks beginning January 7th and ending January 18th. Residents should set out their trees next to their garbage on their normal collection day. Trees should be no taller than 8 feet. The tree should also be free of ornaments, lights, tinsel, wire, nails, stands or plastic bags. The trees must have either one city brush tie or one yellow yard waste sticker and visible from the street or alley.
