Holiday Recycling Tips

  • Place bows/ribbon in the black trash container as they are not recyclable.
  • Place cardboard and gift boxes in your blue recyclable container.
  • Not all wrapping paper is recyclable. If it has metallic specs, pass it through a shredder and use it as filler for other gifts throughout the year.
  • Place live wreath(s) in the yard waste container. Remove all items from the tree or wreath, including stands, nails, ornaments and tinsel.

Holiday Tree Recycling

Holiday trees will be picked up at curbside for recycling for three weeks beginning December 26. Trees will be picked up on your regular collection day by a different truck. Please remove the stand, as well as all ornaments, decorations, lights, tinsel, and garland, from your tree. Place the tree at the curb no earlier than noon on the day preceding your regularly scheduled collection. The trees will be turned into compost, mulch, or ground cover. There is no extra charge for holiday tree collection during this special collection period.

Please note that flocked trees are not accepted as they cannot be recycled. Flocked trees can be cut up and placed into the regular trash cart. Do not place pieces of flocked trees in the green waste cart as they cannot be recycled.
