Garbage/Recycling Information & Schedule

Christmas Tree Pick Up

AF city’s curbside Christmas tree pickup will start January 2nd. Please inform your residents to ensure pickup, they need to have their trees on the curb, not hidden by cars, by 7 am on the 2nd. Although it will take more than the 2nd to collect all of the trees in the city, if we come by a home on the 2nd and someone doesn’t put their tree out until the 3rd or 4th, they won’t be picked up as we won’t be going down each street more than once, starting on the 2nd.
