Holiday Recycling Guide

The holidays bring so much joy – presents, Christmas lights, Christmas trees, presents wrapped sitting under the tree. But what happens when it’s all said and done? There’s a lot of clean up that happens between Christmas and New Year’s.

The EPA says, “The volume of household waste in the United States generally increases 25 percent between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day – about 1 million extra tons.”

That’s a lot of waste.

What can you do to do your part for the environment?

A lot of people use the week between Christmas and New Year’s to finish up some home projects and spruce up the house to start the New Year off right. You might be clearing out your yard after the month of crazy storms that have blown through the area, blowing down branches and any remaining leaves on trees. If you’re cleaning up this week, you can take advantage of our recycling services.

Did you know that we accept Christmas trees and wreaths? We do and here’s what else we accept:

  • Yard debris
  • Leaves
  • Weeds
  • Branches
  • Wood Waste (can be treated or painted)
  • Rubble
  • Sod and Fill Dirt

You can clean up, drop off your yard waste and pick up landscaping supplies in one quick trip.
