Saying Good Bye to the Holiday's

Saying Good Bye to the Holiday's



Christmas is over and we have these gorgeous trees to look at….STILL?

Ok, just like we were quick to say goodbye to Thanksgiving décor we should do the same with Christmas. Don’t let the lights hang until January because of New Years, don’t let the Christmas tree stay up because you still have family in town. TAKE IT ALL DOWN! We all get busy come the New Year and these things don’t get taken care off. Do you really want to start the New Year with last year’s clutter anyway?

We have some help to get rid of some of the usual “It will sit on the side of the road until January waiting for trash collection” excuse




“Beginning December 26, 2014, natural Christmas Trees can be placed curbside for yard waste disposal on regular waste collection days. Natural trees and holiday lights will be accepted at the Waste Management Household Hazardous Waste and E-waste facility, 1176 Pineridge Road, Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Artificial Christmas trees may be scheduled for bulk waste collection. All decorations must be completely removed from both natural and artificial trees.”

Yes, it would be very time saving to get rid of all those old but “beautiful” ornaments, but take them off your trees before setting them outside..Please & thank you!



“Thursday’s route on Friday, December 26
Friday’s route on Saturday, December 27

For the two weeks after Christmas, you can dispose of your live Christmas tree by placing it at the curb  on your scheduled garbage day.”

& they are even saving you the bulk pick up scheduling phone call. Oh and again, please take all that lovely Christmas décor off your tree, yes, even the tinsel!

Virginia Beach:

“Thursday’s route will be collected Saturday, Dec. 27

Christmas trees will be handled as normal yard debris and need to be free of any decorations or tinsel.”


If you want your tree to be compost leave it curbside, if you would prefer it to be turned into mulch please drop it off at the City Landfill and Resource Recovery Center.


“Thursday will be collected on Friday.  Friday will be collected on Saturday. : Tree are not recycled but residents can put them out for disposal for two weeks after Christmas with their regular trash and the collection will not be deducted from their annual (12) free bulk collections.”

Woohoo Suffolk! You even got the pick up as a freebie!



There will be no recycling, refuse or yard waste collection on Thursday Dec. 25. Those collections will be made Wednesday, Dec. 24.

Trees will be picked up at curbside on regular trash collection day. Residents can also bring naturally grown trees to be recycled at the Yard Waste Transfer Site, 100 N. Park Lane (off Big Bethel Road at entrance to Bethel Landfill) from 8 am to 3 pm Monday – Saturday (closed city holidays).

Please don’t take your fake trees to the Yard Waste Transfer site ;) Appreciate ya!


Newport News:

Ok sorry Newport News, you might have to keep that tree just a littttleee longer, or you can take them to the Recovery Operations Center, hopefully you have some time off and don’t work between normal business hours.

“Christmas trees are collected during one week in the month of January on your schedule collection day. In 2015, trees will be picked up during the week of January 12 along with yard waste. Please plan accordingly with your tree, as there will not be another yard waste collection until the week of March 16, 2015.

Christmas trees can be brought to the Recovery Operations Center (formerly the Denbigh Compost Facility), located at 550 Atkinson Way off Warwick Boulevard, Monday – Saturday from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm. Artificial trees cannot be accepted for mulching, but can be disposed of in the trash container.”’


“Christmas Tree recycling information for 2014-2015. The trees can be dropped off, with no charges attached, at any of the three convenience centers from Dec. 26, 2014 through Jan. 31, 2015 during normal operating hours. All lights, decorations and tinsel should be removed prior to drop off.”

No choice for you Williamsburgers….WILLIAMSBURGERS?....

York County:

“Trash collection for Thursday, December 25th and Thursday, January 1st will be cancelled and moved to the next day each week. Thursday’s collection will be on Friday and Friday’s collection will be on Saturday.  All other collections for the week will occur on their regularly scheduled collection day.

Trees should be placed roadside for collection. Tree should be free of the stand, ornaments, tinsel and light.”

Again, no ornaments or Tinsel!

They have the right idea...December 26th tree gone!


We hope everyone had a Wonderful Holiday Season and that you have a very safe and fun New Years Eve!
