Charlotte Solid Waste crews will begin hauling away natural Christmas trees Wednesday, city officials say.
Trash pickup is on a regular schedule this week in Charlotte and some other area towns, while other municipalities will have one-day delays for trash collections.
Solid Waste officials say Christmas trees will be picked up as yard waste starting Wednesday. Residents are reminded to remove all decorations from trees before hauling them to the curb.
People in multifamily communities and served by the city can call 311 to schedule pickup of natural trees.
Artificial trees are collected as part of the bulky item pickup. That can be scheduled by calling 311 or going to www.curbit.charlottenc.gov.
Since Christmas, Charlotte residents have been able to put extra garbage – bags that don’t fit in the rollout bins – on the curb next to the bins. But starting Tuesday, all bags must be inside the bins again, according to city officials.
A regular trash collection schedule is being followed this week in Charlotte and Matthews, among other communities. That means trucks will operate on New Year’s Day.
But according to town officials, there will be one-day delays in Davidson, Huntersville and Mint Hill for residents whose pickup days are Tuesday through Friday, with no trucks operating New Year’s Day.
