Any decorations or lights must be completely removed from greenery prior to drop-off, but a separate bin will be available to recycle Christmas lights.

Additionally, the City will host a separate staffed garbage drop-off event at the same location on Sunday, December 27th from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for wrapping paper, boxes and other more general garbage collected over the holiday season. The event will be completely touchless, and in accordance with the statewide mask mandate, face coverings will be required.
