GreenWaste has a special garbage, recycling and Christmas tree collection schedule for Palo Alto residents.
There will be no residential garbage or recycling collection on Thanksgiving Day, November 25. If you are a resident whose garbage and recycling is normally picked up on Thursdays, then it will be collected on Friday, November 26. If you normally have garbage service on Friday, then yours will be picked up on Saturday, November 27. For Christmas and New Years Day, there will be no changes to your normal collection schedule.
For those wishing to recycle their Christmas trees after the holidays, you can do so by cutting your tree into four foot lengths. All decorations, stands, etc must be removed from the tree before placing it on your curb. If you live in an apartment or condominium, check with your property manager to see if they have arranged a Christmas tree collection from GreenWaste for your residential complex.
Palo Alto residents who wish to recycle their tree at the landfill located at the East of Embarcadero Road, can do so for no charge from December 26, 2010 to February 1, 2011. The landfill is open every day from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For any other questions concerning GreenWaste, call 650-493-4894.
