With the Holiday Season upon us, residents can recycle their holiday packaging materials by placing them in the blue recycling cart. Acceptable items include: wrapping paper, tissue, cardboard boxes, cards and other paper packaging materials. Please do not include foil-type wrapping paper and Styrofoam packaging. Bows and ribbons can be reused and Christmas trees can be cut and placed in green waste cans as long as the lid can completely close.
Cardboard and excess packaging materials can be recycled by taking them to the city’s recycling drop-off bins located in the Wal-Mart parking lot.
The City will also be holding its annual Christmas Tree Recycling Drop-off Event on Saturday January 9th and Sunday January 10th. Trees will be accepted at Rodeo Park located at the end of Stafford Street. Both dates are from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and all ornaments and stands must be removed before dropping off your tree. Boy Scouts will be available to help residents unload trees and will also be collecting trees throughout the city as part of their fundraising activities.
As a reminder, the city collects garbage; green waste and recycling on all holidays so please place your cans out on your normal collection day.
