Tree for a Tree, January 5 22, 2018


Christmas Tree Collection

Trees will be collected curbside on the regular garbage day during the week of January 8-12, 2018. In case of bad weather, crews may be needed for snow and ice control. Collection of trees will then be extended into the following week as needed, until skipped areas have been collected (if your tree becomes buried with snow, please assist operations by clearing it of snow). After that collection week, trees must be brought to the Public Works yard waste drop-off site located at 2625 E. Glendale Avenue (open Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 9:00 A.M. to 4:45 P.M.), or removed from the curb until the brush collection in spring. Please remove plastic tree bags.

The Old Third Ward Neighborhood Association provides scholarships to high school students who wish to pursue studies in historic preservation, urban planning, local history and other related subjects. The Association also brings the neighborhood together for an annual dinner (in January) and an end-of-summer picnic (in September.) We also maintain the Old Third Ward Website, publish a popular walking tour brochure of the area, and stage periodic home tours. Please help the Association continue these worthy practices. The Old Third Ward Neighborhood Association is a private nonprofit corporation.
