Have you started taking down your Christmas decorations yet?
If not, this might offer some incentive. At least for those who have a real Christmas tree.
Groot Industries will be picking up Christmas trees for free from Dec. 30 through the second full week of January (Jan. 17 is the last day) on each residents normally scheduled garbage day.
Residents are asked to place their bare tree (no lights, ornaments, tinsel or any decorations) by the curb on their normal scheduled garbage day without a yard waste sticker and not in a bag.
After the second full week in January residents will be required to wait until April when the yard waste program starts up again and a sticker will be needed at that time.
