1/19/12 – If you haven not disposed of that Christmas tree yet, the Beaver Dam Department of Public Works is reminding residents that they have until next week Friday to drag it to the curb. The service is for residents who receive contracted solid waste collection services from the city. Director of Facilities David Stoiser says the special collection does not include other brush and shrubbery cuttings. Trees and boughs must be free of ornaments, lights and stands so they can be chipped. Wreaths and boughs containing roping or wire may also be placed in the Veolia non-recyclable cart for collection as garbage. City residents can also dispose of Christmas trees and boughs at the Public Works Garage Yard Waste Drop-off Site on South Center Street, Monday through Friday. No waste of any kind is accepted from outside of the City or from any contractors.
