Holiday Trees?

​​Natural tree collection is January 3-28. Put your natural tree on the curb  and the city will take it as yard waste and turn it into mulch. Please remove all decorations and lights.


Recycling lights? 

Through Jan. 16, 2022, residents can drop off broken or unwanted holiday lights, including string lights, rope lights and electric candles at partner collection sites throughout the city. Other items that can be dropped off include extension cords, timers, light sensors, power strips and other small electronics.

Electronics, including holiday lights, should never go in recycling carts or recycling dumpsters. They cause damage to equipment at the Recycle Center and put employees at risk.
