Rochelle — The City of Rochelle will chip Christmas trees left on the curb during the first two weeks of January. If you would like to discard your tree sooner, bring it to Atwood Park, behind the band shell, at 10th Avenue and 20th Street. Please remove all decorations, tinsel and ornaments. Wreaths and garland are not accepted at this time.
The Christmas Tree Recycling drop-off program is open to all Ogle County residents and is sponsored by the Flagg Rochelle Park District, City of Rochelle and Ogle County Solid Waste Management. Please call city hall at 815-562-6161 with questions.
