Garbage, recycling, yard trimming pickups changing for Thanksgiving (and more!)



Garbage, recycling, yard trimming pickups changing for Thanksgiving
If your usual garbage, recycling, and yard trimmings collection falls on or after Thanksgiving Day, your collection day will be one day later during that week. There are no changes to collection service on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. Go to www.sjenvironment.org/lookup to find your holiday collection day. Please set out carts and bins by 6 a.m. on collection day.

San José Recycles Clean. Empty and scrape food-soiled containers before recycling.
This holiday season, recycle clean by emptying and scraping food-soiled containers before placing in the recycling. Food and liquid-soiled containers go in the garbage. If they're placed in the recycling, clean recyclables can be contaminated, making the entire bin or cart unrecyclable. For more recycling and waste reduction tips, and a complete guide of what goes where, visit SanJoseRecycles.org.

Recycle Your Holiday Tree
Curbside collection of holiday trees will be on your regular collection day from December 27, 2021, to January 28, 2022. Remove stands, tinsel and decorations. Cut into 5-foot pieces. Set out by 6:00 a.m. Multi-Family Dwelling Property Managers should contact GreenWaste at (408) 283-4800 to arrange for tree collection.

Too much holiday trash? Sticker it! 
Buy Extra Garbage Stickers at San José City Hall, Lucky, and Safeway stores.

Holiday tree orders due Nov 5

Holiday yard tree

Each year going back to 1954, neighbors in Willow Glen have placed a small Christmas tree in our front yards and decorated them with colorful lights with a single white light on top. We’re continuing the tradition this 2021 holiday season!

Trees are $23. You will need to provide your own lights and mounting rebar or tree stand. Order with a credit card at willowglentrees.com. No cash or checks are accepted for our block this year. If you have any questions, please contact Bernadette McCann: 
bamccann07@gmail.com or text/call 408-504-7141

All orders are due on or before Friday, November 5.

Trees will be distributed on Saturday, December 4th.

Another fun Party In The Park!

We were grateful to have our annual-except-for-2020 Party In The Park on Sunday, lots of fun for everyone! It was nice to see so many neighbors out enjoying the evening and reconnecting.

For those who are new to our neighborhood, Party In The Park usually includes a collection of potluck side dishes but we pivoted this year due to COVID and worked to have as safe an event as possible.

We're looking forward to the holiday decorating contest, and COVID willing, our annual holiday party that's always a fun event.

MANY THANKS to the following people:
Chris Davis for creating the flier
Duke Mantee and the Gold Money Band for the great music
Jeff Mullen of Willow Glen Creamery who donated the ice cream.

Come join us for our ninth annual Party in the Park, 4:30 on Sunday!

We’ll have live entertainment from Duke Mantee and the Gold Money Band from 5:00-7:00 pm. We’ll have a barbecue fired up with hot dogs of all kinds on the grill, including veggie.

Please note: Due to COVID-19, only designated volunteers will be serving hot dogs onto plates along with commercially prepared side dishes and condiments. For this year only, please do not bring side dishes.

We’ll also provide beverages, but most importantly ice cream donated by Willow Glen Creamery.

Masks are recommended.

See you at Hummingbird Park, on the corner of Bird and Fisk!
