We can help haul away your Christmas tree after the season ends. Call the City of Cape Girardeau Public Works Department (573-339-6351) to schedule a Wednesday pick up between Jan. 7 and Feb. 25. 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 free of charge, starting Dec. 29.
Also, Public Works’ solid waste crews will accept a reasonable amount of extra holiday trash on your regularly scheduled pick up day between Dec. 29-Jan. 9. 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.
