Announcements – Week of January 13th

Holiday Tree Pickup Continues through January 18th.  According to the City’s website:

“2019 Christmas tree collection will begin January 7 and run through January 18, 2019.

Each year, the City of Newton collects Christmas trees for recycling during the first two weeks of January. Collection occurs on your regular trash collection day. Place your un-decorated Christmas tree out to the curb by 7am on your collection day during this two week window. All decorations and lights must be removed and trees cannot be in a plastic bag.

While we highly encourage residents to get their tree out during the first two weeks of January, we understand that time frame does not work for everyone. If you missed the Christmas tree pickup, please request a pickup request using 311 or by calling Customer Service. Alternatively, residents can wait until April and prepare the tree according to yard waste guidelines. “
