I finally found the 2017 link for Christmas tree recycling in the city of Avondale.
To save you clicking on the link… the article says:
Recycle your Christmas tree! Avondale residents are invited to recycle their live Christmas trees. Trees must be free of all decorations – including lights, bulbs, ribbon, garland and tree stands. This service is offered to Avondale residents at no charge. Proof of residency is required.
Trees can be dropped off at A to Z Equipment Rentals and Sales, 803 E. Van Buren, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 26 through Jan. 6, with the exception of New Year’s Day (Jan. 1), when the facility is closed. Also there will be limited hours on New Year’s Eve, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Residents can also leave trees at the curb as part of the city’s green waste monthly bulk trash pick-up. Residents are advised to check when their neighborhood zone pickup is scheduled. (Rio Crossing Bulk Week is January 8-12. Please don’t put your tree out by the street early!)
