About the Program
The Vernon Hills Public Works Department offers a Holiday Tree Recycling Program for residents following the Holiday season. The pick-up schedule begins in early January by subdivision. Residents needing to dispose of their live tree are instructed to leave the tree at the street curb before 7:00 AM the morning of their subdivision's scheduled pickup date to be recycled (see Pick-up Schedule below). All ornaments, lights, stands, and bags must be removed from the tree.
Missing a Scheduled Pickup
If a resident should happen to miss their scheduled pickup date(s), trees should be brought to the Public Works Facility located at 490 Greenleaf Drive to be recycled. Trees should be placed next to the brick mulch bin across from the fuel pumps within the Public Works parking lot. No appointment necessary. Please be advised that the Public Works Department does not pick up trees at resident's homes beyond the scheduled pickup dates.
