The time has come to bid farewell to the holidays and get rid of those Christmas trees, and all the wrapping and packaging from the presents given over the holidays.
The town will collect Christmas trees in January, so start putting them out on your regular trash collection days through the the month.
(Note: Trash collection will be delayed one day this week due to the New Year's Day holiday.)
The Public Works Department is teaming with the Watertown Recycling Advisory Board to host a Post Holiday Paper Shredding event where they will also collect styrofoam, hard plastics, cardboard and tires (without rims). The event will be held Jan. 5, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Public Works Facility, 124 Orchard St. in Watertown.
