Holiday Happenings

Holiday Happenings

Every year the city observes several holidays. These holidays are spread throughout the year and will affect some of the services provided to citizens. For instance, the Solid Waste Services Department will not provide residential waste, recycling or brush/bulky waste collection on city-designated holidays. These services will resume on your next regularly scheduled day.

Collections and Landfill

The City of Irving recognizes New Years Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and the day after, and Christmas as city holidays. There will be no trash, recycling or brush/bulky waste collection and the Hunter Ferrell landfill is closed on the following 2018 days:

  • New Year's Day - Monday, Jan. 1
  • Memorial Day - Monday, May 28
  • Independence Day - Wednesday, July 4
  • Labor Day - Monday, Sept. 3

Christmas Tree Roundup

Residents will have an opportunity to properly dispose of their fresh-cut Christmas trees for recycling during Irving’s annual Christmas Tree Roundup, which runs through early January. Bare fresh-cut Christmas trees will be collected as part of the city’s weekly brush / bulky waste pickup Dec. 27 through Jan. 11. For more information, please call (972) 721-8059. Residents also may take Christmas trees to any of the following drop-off locations Dec. 22 through Jan. 5:

Whether placing at the curb or dropping off, residents must remove all obstructions, such as tree stands, lights, tinsel, nails and ornaments. All plastic bags covering the tree also must be removed.

All Christmas trees collected will be mulched, which is made available for a nominal fee at the city landfill as Mustang Mulch. For more information about the Christmas Tree Roundup or other city recycling programs, please call (972) 721-8059.
