Islip Town residents can put out their Christmas trees and other winter yard waste for sanitation pickup on specific days in the first two weeks of the new year, officials announced.

The greenery will be collected on the second day of household collections — either on Jan. 5 or 6 for the first week and Jan. 12 or 13 for the second week — depending on the address, according to a news release. For those living in Islip Resource Recovery Agency Collection Districts, also known as “Black Pail Districts,” the waste will be collected there on either Monday or Tuesday, Jan. 2 and 3, and 9 and 10, depending on the address.

The discarded trees should be put on the curb before pickup begins at 6 a.m. on the appropriate date, officials said. In the case of snow, the town asks residents to remove the waste from any compacted snow.

All typical rules for trash pickup should be followed, including 50-pound weight limits on individual bags, bundles and trash cans. Separate pickups for the trees and winter yard waste will be made apart from normal household garbage.
