The Redding Highway Department will be picking up Christmas trees on a road-by-road basis starting today, though may be delayed due to inclement weather. All lights, tinsel and ornaments must be removed. Live trees in plastic bags will not be accepted. If significant snow accumulation occurs trees must be placed on top of the snow as the highway department will not dig them out. Trees are also accepted at the Recycling Center free of charge during normal business hours. The trees will be chipped, and the chips will be available at the Recycling Center free of charge to all residents.
