Santa Clara Valley Disposal to collect trash in Fillmore on Saturdays during holiday season

Since Christmas and New Year’s Day fall on a Friday this year, Santa Clara Valley Disposal delay its regular Friday trash collection schedule to Saturday in Fillmore both weeks.

The regular collection schedule will return the week of Jan. 4-8, 2016.

As a special holiday feature, residents may put out twice the amount of trash at no extra charge during the two weeks following Christmas. Please make sure the trash is in bags. We will also collect extra recyclables, but please make sure to flatten all boxes.

Also, Harrison is making it easy for their customers to recycle their Christmas trees. All customers need to do is remove the ornaments, hooks, lights, tinsel, bows, nails and tree stand, then cut the tree into sections no more than 4 feet long and place in the yard waste barrel on their scheduled pickup day. Also, for the first year, flocked trees can be recycled.
