Since Christmas Day and New Year's Day both fall on a Saturday this year, there will be no delay in the collection schedule for garbage and recycling pickup in Farmington and Farmington Hills. Collection will take place on your regularly scheduled day during the weeks before and after Christmas Day and the weeks before and after New Year's Day.
Holiday cards and wrapping paper, except those with metallics or glitter, can go in your recycle bins, as can aluminum holiday cookie tins and lids.
Christmas trees can be dropped off for recycling at Glen Oaks Golf Course from Dec. 26 through Jan. 16, seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the east end of the clubhouse parking lot at 30500 W. Thirteen Mile, just east of Orchard Lake Road. Trees must be free of all lights, decorations, and tinsel. For more information on this earth-friendly alternative, call 248-858-0906 or go to DestinationOakland.com. All trees placed at the curbside will be collected with the regular trash.
