According to the village, Waste Management will accept real trees on regular refuse collection days. From the village website: "Trees should be bundled properly and placed at the curb. They must be four (4) feet or shorter in length and width and tied with string or twine, weighing 50 pounds or less."
There's also still time to dispose of unwanted string lights; the Plainfield Public Library, 15025 S. Illinois St., is accepting lights for recycling. Lights can be dropped off through Feb. 6 and will be recycled and repurposed by Elgin Recycling.
