Indianapolis ends curb-side Christmas tree pickup

The city of Indianapolis tried curb-side pickup of Christmas trees last season, but it's going back to asking residents to resume dropping trees off at city parks.

There was confusion last year when the city tried to implement the new program, The Indianapolis Star reported. Instead of putting trees at the curb, residents put took them to the parks. The city rescinded the ban against the park drop-off for trees by Jan. 6 due to the confusion.

This year, things will go back to the way they've been done for years. The city said residents can drop off their Christmas trees at nine city parks for mulching until Jan. 31. There will be no curb-side pickup this season. Trees should be free of decorations and other non-organic material.
