The city of Casper will send garbage trucks out on their usual routes on New Year's Eve.  The city has also provided five drop-off points for Christmas trees suitable for composting.

New Year's Eve trash collection:

"On Friday, you just roll your container out to the gutter line in the curb like you normally do, and have that out there by 7 am, and they'll come around and pick up the trash, even though all city offices are closed on Friday, we're still collecting trash as usual."

Beth Andress, of Keep Casper Beautiful, says the landfill will be open from 7:30 am to 1 pm on Friday, but will be closed on Saturday, New Year's Day.

And for those actual tree, Christmas trees in need of disposal, the city has provided five prepared locations to drop them off.

Christmas tree drop areas:

Those five drop-off locations are: the corner of Valley Drive and Iris, in Paradise Valley by the pool; Mike Sedar Park behind Fire Station Number Two; the ag-extension on Fairgrounds Road in the Community Garden area; the north Casper recycling depots by the ball fields on K Street; and Viking Court, which is Blackmore Road and Wyoming Boulevard.

Ms. Andress says that the Christmas tree collection areas are marked and fenced so people can drop them off any time of the day or night, any day of the week.

She does ask people to remember that these trees are for the city compost, so they need to be thoroughly undecorated and checked for any foreign material.
