HOLIDAY RECYCLING/WASTE COLLECTION SCHEDULE CHANGES
Your recycle, compost, and garbage collection day will change during the holidays. Collection will not occur on Christmas and New Year’s Day. If your regular collection day falls on or after one of these holidays, your collection day will be moved to the following day for the rest of the week.

HOLIDAY TREE COLLECTION
For the four weeks following Christmas day, holiday trees will be collected curbside. Trees must be undecorated, unflocked, cut to four-foot lengths with stands removed, and placed curbside next to your compost cart.
Cardboard boxes and packaging materials that are not properly prepared can cause litter that negatively impacts our streets and creeks, as well as costly inefficiencies in our waste collection system.
