Add Recycling to Your Holiday List this Year

Recycle Tree

With COVID-19 still among us, the holidays will be very different this year. Although there may not be large holiday gatherings, you can still help protect the environment by recycling all season long. Consider it a holiday gift to planet Earth.

When serving the family dinner this holiday season, avoid using disposable plastic tablecloths, decorations, or serving bowls. These cannot be recycled. Consider items that can be reused year after year. Avoid using paper plates, foil pans, and plastic silverware and cups. Yes, it requires rewashing non-disposable items, but it is worth it to keep those items out of our landfills. If you must use disposables, serve beverages in aluminum cans that can be recycled. Make sure everyone knows where the recycle bin is in your home to ensure items are recycled.

Christmas lights, toys, plastic packaging, tissue paper, ribbons, and most wrapping paper are not recyclable and should not be put in curbside bins. Some home improvement stores have collection bins for holiday lights. Contact your local store to find out if bins are available. Some metal recyclers will take holiday lights. Check the internet for metal recyclers in the area and ask if they take holiday lights.

The City also offers the free Merry Mulch Program to recycle Christmas trees that will be turned into mulch. City crews pick up live Christmas trees in early January. Trees must be placed on the tree lawn by 7 a.m. January 4 for the first round of pickup and by 7 a.m. January 20 for the second round. No other types of trees or branches will be collected.
