We can help haul away your Christmas tree after the season ends. Call the City of Cape Girardeau Public Works Department at 573-339-6351 to schedule a Wednesday pick up between Jan. 11 and Feb. 22. Crews will pick up your tree for $5. Or, you can haul your tree to the collection area in the southeast corner of Arena Park (near the livestock area of the fairgrounds) free of charge.
Also, Public Works’ solid waste crews will accept a reasonable amount of extra holiday trash on your regularly scheduled pick up day between Dec. 27-Jan. 6. Place any extra bags of trash beside your cart. The cart will be emptied, and then refilled with the extra trash and emptied again. Call 573-339-6351 with questions.
