Calendar icon November 4 Pumpkin Collection Begins
Nov. 4 - 5 | Farmington Maintenance Facility (19500 Municipal Dr., Farmington)

Calendar icon November 13 Holiday Light Collection
Nov. 13 - Jan. 31 | Municipal Liquor Stores, City Hall, and the Rambling River Center
This holiday season, remember NOT to place any string lights in your curbside recycling bin! String lights get tangled in sorting equipment at recycling centers, causing safety and mechanical issues. Instead, bring them to the collection bins at the Municipal Liquor Stores, City Hall, or the Rambling River Center until January 31, or bring them to the Recycling Zone year-round. Please no cord adapters, plastic rope.
