    Prevent sewer backups after Thanksgiving

    The day after Thanksgiving is the biggest day of the year for sewer backups! Fats, oil, and grease sent down the drain during Thanksgiving meal preparation and cleanup contribute to this.

      Recycle/dispose of holiday lights and Christmas trees

      We've updated our list of local holiday light string recycling drop-offs.
      Request a bulk trash pickup to dispose of artificial Christmas trees (or offer usable trees for reuse). We now accept cut Christmas trees year-round as yard trim. See Christmas tree recycling and disposal details.
