Holiday Recycling in Folsom

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.

Recycle 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.

Keep your Christmas tree out of the landfill and recycle it for mulch and other purposes. The City of Folsom is hosting a free Christmas tree recycling drop off event on Saturday, Jan. 9 and Sunday, Jan. 10 at Rodeo Park from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. All ornaments and stands must be removed before dropping off your tree. Boy Scouts will help residents unload trees and will also be collecting trees throughout Folsom as part of their annual fundraising activities.

Take unwanted, bagged Christmas lights and excess packaging materials to the City’s recycling drop-off bin located in the Walmart parking lot at 1018 Riley Street. For more information, contact the City’s Solid Waste Division at 355-8367 or visit
