Out With The Old: Holiday Trash/Recycling Schedule Set For Boise

Posted By on Thu, Dec 26, 2013 at 9:46 AM

As lovely as the Christmas presents were on Wednesday, the aftermath gets kicked the curb beginning today.

Trash and recycling in the city of Boise is delayed by one day for the remainder of this week. The same goes for next week: There will be no collection on Wednesday, Jan. 1, and pick-up will be delayed by one day the remainder of the week.

Boise is offering free overflow trash collection from Monday, Dec. 30, through Saturday, Jan. 4. Overflow trash should be placed in 20- to 32-gallon trash cans or gray trash cans. No overflow stickers will be required next week. Boiseans are asked not to put trash in boxes, plastic bags or left loose on the cub—those items won't be collected.

Christmas trees and bundled branches will be recycled curbside from Monday, Jan. 6, through Friday, Jan. 10. Christmas trees set out for collection must be free of lights, ornaments, tinsel and stand. They must also be cut to 4-foot lengths or shorter. Tree branches also must be bundled and weigh less than 60 pounds. Flocked trees and wreaths won't be accepted.
