Chicago’s 2018 Tree Recycling Program runs from January 6-20 at dozens of parks across the city. The one closest to residents in the 46th Ward is Margate Park, 4921 N. Marine Drive. Make sure trees have been cleared of all decorations and lights because the trees will be shredded for mulch. Click here for more information and also to learn how to get free mulch. Streets & Sanitation also will pick up your tree if you’re unable to take it to be recycled.
