Did you know that the average household creates 25 percent more garbage during the holiday season?  

The City of Tuscaloosa hopes to alleviate the extra garbage created during the Christmas holiday week by hosting a garbage drop-off event on Saturday, Dec. 26 from 8 am-4 pm.

Other information This free event will be centrally located at the Curry Environmental Services facility at 3440 Kauloosa Ave. There will be no other garbage drop-off sites.

All participants will be required to check in and complete a participation form.

Along with bringing extra bags of holiday garbage, citizens are encouraged to recycle cardboard boxes, wrapping paper, plastic #1 containers, plastic #2 bottles, plastic bags, steel ‘soup’ cans, aluminum cans, newspaper and magazines in the appropriate recycling containers onsite.
