From December 26th until January 7th, residents can drop off live trees, wreaths and garlands at the Curry Environmental Services facility on Kauloosa Avenue.

The greenery must be completely free of decorations and lights to be recycled, but strings of Christmas lights can be dropped off in a separate bin on-site.

Holiday garbage like wrapping paper can be dropped off at the same place from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Sunday, December 26th.

The city also encouraged residents who take advantage of the holiday garbage drop-off or greenery recycling events to bring their household recycling along with them to deposit in containers at the facility.
