YARD WASTE & CHRISTMAS TREE COLLECTION. Please note, our collection services for Christmas trees and yard waste have ended until the spring. We've noticed many residents placing these items out along the curb. Please take any yard waste/Christmas trees located on the curb and place in your yard out of street view until yard waste pickup starts back up the week of April 3. Your private refuse hauler may be able to take these items from you sooner, if you aren't able to hold onto them until spring. Thank you for your help keeping our streets neat and tidy!
