Closing weekend for Taproot’s ‘Civil War Christmas,’ waste pickup delayed by one day again next week

Seems like a pretty quiet New Year’s weekend in the neighborhood this weekend, but check out our Events calendar for updates.

It’s closing weekend for Taproot Theatre’s production of “A Civil War Christmas: An American Musical Celebration.”

Couth Buzzard Books, 8310 Greenwood Ave. N., presents the Whateverly Brothers’ seasonal concert at 8 p.m. Friday; and New Year’s Eve Jazz Jam with Kenny Mandell & The Couth All-Stars from 2-4:30 p.m. Sunday.

Seattle Public Utilities will delay garbage, yard waste and recycling pickup by one day again next week because New Year’s Day is on Monday. So if your pickup day is normally scheduled for Monday, it all will be picked up on Tuesday, Tuesday scheduled pickups will be done on Wednesday, Wednesday pickups on Thursday, etc. Put your waste out by 7 a.m. as usual.

And you can compost your Christmas tree and other holiday greenery for free until Jan. 31 either curbside or at a transfer station. Remember to remove all decorations, tinsel, etc. If leaving your tree at the curb, you need to cut it into lengths of four-feet or shorter and bundle it with sisal string or twine. But if you take it to a transfer station it can be as long as eight feet and doesn’t need to be bundled with string. Flocked or plastic trees will be charged as extra garbage.
