Dispose of Christmas trees in the green can
Christmas trees go in the green can
If you are disposing of your Christmas tree, cut it into 4-foot lengths and put it in your green can. Flocked trees need to be put in the gray trash can. Do not put trees at the curb.
But you can't get rid of your tree on Christmas Day, or New Year's Day either. The offices of the City of Merced will be closed on Christmas, Monday, Dec. 25, and New Year's Day, Monday, Jan. 1.
There will be no trash collection on those days. All refuse pickup will be delayed one day for those holiday weeks. If you have any questions about trash collection, please call Public Works at 385-6800.
And the Council meeting normally held on the first Monday of the month will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 2 at 6 p.m. in the City Council Chambers due to the holiday.
