Now that the holidays have come and gone, the time has come to take down your Christmas tree, but, then what? Well, if you’re in the Prairie du Chien area, your Christmas clean-up solution comes on Saturday, Jan. 10.
Bright and early Saturday morning, at 8 a.m., some volunteers from the Prairie du Chien Jaycees and drivers from the city of Prairie du Chien will drive around town to help remove residents’ holiday burdens.
Jaycees president Tori Pettera said the event is collaboratively sponsored by the Jaycees and the city of Prairie du Chien. “The city provides the trucks and the drivers and we provide the volunteers.”
The Jaycees ask that all trees be bag-less and that all decorations be removed prior to pick-up.
If you would like to have your Christmas tree removed for free, all you need to do is take it out to the closest corner of your block on Friday night, Jan. 9, said Pettera.
