Holidays to impact trash pickup, City office closures
City offices will be closed Dec. 24-25 and Jan. 1 for the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. There will be no trash pickup on Christmas Day, though garbage will be collected on New Year’s Day.
Garbage collection will be delayed one day from Dec. 25 through Dec. 28. So, Tuesday’s routes will be serviced on Wednesday. Wednesday’s routes will be serviced on Thursday, and so on into Saturday. Routes for commercial customers may also lag by a day during that span.
Among the City operations that will be closed: Station 618 and Santa Fe Crossing senior centers, the Parks and Recreation offices, Southside and Carl Ray Johnson recreation centers, the San Angelo-Tom Green County Health Department, the Animal Shelter, Fairmount Cemetery’s business offices, Municipal Court and the Nature Center. Women, Infants and Children (WIC) will be closed Dec. 21-25, Dec. 28 and Jan. 1.
City offices will reopen at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 26, and on Wednesday, Jan. 2.
Fort Concho and its visitors center, 630 S. Oakes St., will also be closed Dec. 24-25 and Jan. 1. It will otherwise be open for self-guided tours during its normal hours. For more information, visit fortconcho.com.
Paper, Nos. 3-7 plastics no longer accepted recyclables
Those items are being excluded from the recycling stream because they are not profitable commodities. The acceptable recycling materials are:
- Flattened corrugated cardboard.
- Boxboard, cereal and frozen food boxes.
- No. 1 and 2 plastics. No. 1 plastics include soda and water bottles, mouthwash bottles, peanut butter containers, salad dressing and vegetable oil containers. The latter three should be cleaned before recycling. No. 2 plastics include milk jugs, juice bottles; bleach, detergent and household cleaner bottles; and shampoo bottles.
- Steel, tin and aluminum cans.
- Empty aerosol cans.
Customers will continue to receive curbside recycling pickup every other week, alternating with bulk pickup on their collection day. There will be no change in the rates customers pay.
“We are pleased to be able to continue to offer this service to our citizens, which contributes to both the preservation of natural resources and the extension of our landfill’s lifespan,” City Manager Daniel Valenzuela said.
Customers who use their recycling bins as a second garbage can are subject to have the green containers removed. A second garbage bin is available for an additional monthly cost.
