Holiday Waste & Recycling

The Holidays are upon us which usually means an increase in household waste.  Please review our Waste 101 flyer about everything you can recycle.  Although, here are a few highlighted items to keep in mind when recycling holiday waste:

  1. Trees, Wreaths, Garlands, Swags, and Flowers/Poinsettias can all go in your Mixed Compostables cart.  Please remember to remove all wires, bows, and lights before placing in cart.
  2. Your food scraps (including turkey carcasses) and soiled paper (plates, napkins, paper towels – must be 100% paper – no wax coating) can go in the Mixed Compostables cart.
  3. Recycle all wrapping paper in your Blue Co-mingled Recycling Cart, but please remove bows and ribbons.

Holiday Service Schedule:  There will be no service on the Thanksgiving holiday, November 24.  If your regular service day is on Nov. 24 or 25, your carts will be picked up the subsequent day ending on Saturday.
