Recycling of Holiday Wrapping Paperer
Do not put this paper in your curbside container. December 25, 2012 thru January 6, 2013 you can bring your wrapping paper to the Waste Diversion Center at 140 Martin Street. There will be a specially designated bin to recycle your wrapping paper. Wrapping paper is considered a contaminant in the single-stream process due to its high clay content and low fiber content, thus requiring that it be kept separate from all other recyclables. Please do not include metallic wrapping paper, ribbons, bows, ornaments, tissue paper, fluorescent or dark paper, or paper covered in tape (these items are not recyclable).
Recycle your old Holiday Lights
You may recycle your old Holiday Lights at the Waste Diversion Center. There will be specially designated containers for your light strands. Please wrap each string of lights into a ball and drop them in the appropriate container.
Trash Collection Holiday Schedule
There will be no Trash and recycling collection on Tuesday, December 25th for Christmas Day and Tuesday, January 1st for New Year's Day. Trash and recycling will be provided the day after the holiday for the rest of the holiday week (for example Tuesday is a holiday, Tuesday's trash and recycling collection will be on Wednesday, Wednesday's trash and recycling collection will be on Thursday and Thursday's trash and recycling collection will be on Friday).
