Throwing out Christmas tree? Chip in for garden

Chicago residents can recycle their Christmas trees by turning them into mulch.
Humboldt Park Boathouse, 1400 N. Sacramento, is the closest dropoff point, according to the office of Ald. Manny Flores (1st Ward).

From Jan. 3 through 16, trees can be dropped off at any time. Mulch can be picked up Monday through Saturday starting January 9, from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. For other locations, call (312) 744-7606.

Trees also can be left with the trash and will be picked up on the regularly scheduled day.


Daily permit cost rises


Beginning Jan. 1, 2009 the price for daily permits in restricted parking areas will increase to $8 per booklet. Annual and daily permits for Restricted Parking Permit Zones are available on the City Clerk's Web site: www.chicityclerk.com. Online purchases are processed in two to three days. There is no service fee.

The city is also taking applications for sidewalk repair. The city and applicant split the cost. Apply by calling 311. When the budget is exhausted, the program will close for the year. For more information, call Jerry Gabrielatos at the 1st Ward service office, (773) 278-0101.
