December 29, 2022

Curbside pickup for residents living west of Cedar Creek will be Jan. 9. Curbside pickup for residents living east of Cedar Creek will be Jan. 16.

Residents are asked to remove all tinsel, ornaments, and lights from the tree before placing it curbside. Republic Services also asks residents to cut their tree into four-foot sections before placing it curbside. Those trees collected will be properly recycled and turned into mulch or compost.

Republic would also like to remind residents of special instructions when it comes to disposing other Christmas decorations.

Artificial Christmas trees, made of polyvinyl chloride, are not recyclable and will end up in a landfill unless it can be repurposed. Repurpose your artificial tree using the branches to make a festive holiday wreath.

Holiday string lights should never be recycled. They can spool around the equipment at recycling facilities and cause damage to the equipment.

Tinsel and ornaments are also not recyclable. These items can be repurposed or donated before being discarded.
