Naperville Now 12-26-18

Christmas Tree Collection

As Christmas has come to a close, it will soon be time to start packing up the holiday decorations. If you have a live tree, the city of Naperville does provide tree collection during the first two weeks of January. They ask that trees be placed curbside and cleared of all tinsel, lights and decorations. The first collection will begin on Monday, December 31.

 

Holiday Light Recycling

And as the decorations come down, if there are any lights that have lost their luster – set them aside and take them to one of the many holiday light recycling bins around town. The Naperville Park District is accepting mini, rope, LED, C-7 and C-9 lights for recycling. You can drop them off at the Fort Hill Activity Center, Alfred Rubin Riverwalk Community Center, Springbrook Golf Course, and Knoch Knolls Nature Center, now through February 1.

 

NFD Blood Drive

A great way to channel that holiday spirit is to give blood. The Naperville Fire Department has partnered with Vitalant, formerly LifeSource, to hold a blood drive at Safety Town tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. If you plan to give blood, please eat well and stay hydrated leading up to your donation. Participants will receive a free Vitalant t-shirt.
