Time to Cleanup Christmas


Time now to take out the Christmas trash; and no, we're not talking about any of your relatives.

Allied Waste will be hauling a lot more garbage this week, and they're asking for a little help. If you have overflow trash or yard waste, set your extra cans or paper leaf bags near to your gray trash cart. Trash or yard waste in plastic bags or boxes won't be collected. If you have extra recyclables, they're asking that you place them in a 20-32 gallon container near your blue cart, and tape a label that reads "extra recycling" on your overflow.

Christmas tree curbside collection begins Jan. 2 and runs through Jan. 6. Trees must be cut into four-foot lengths and free of all decorations.
