Groot Industries will collect Christmas trees after the holidays through the second full week of January (through Jan. 17). 

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.

Holiday trash schedule

Groot will not pick up residential trash on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

The company will observe the holidays on Thursday, Dec. 25 and Thursday, Jan. 1.  For both weeks Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday garbage collection will remain on schedule and the remainder of the week will be one day later. 

Therefore; Thursday’s pick up will be on Friday and Friday’s pick up will be on Saturday. The next holiday that Groot Industries will be taking off is Monday, May 25 for Memorial Day.
