New Year's Day closings
Kent City Hall and all other city government buildings will be closed Tuesday in observance of New Year's Day, as will Kent Free Library and the Kent Post Office.
Trash, recycling pickup delays
The city's residential trash collection service and Portage County curbside recycling program will operate on a delayed schedule next week, excluding the Monday route. The Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday routes each will be one day later than usual.
Christmas tree disposal
The city offers free curbside Christmas tree pickup from Jan. 7-18. Residents are asked to remove all tinsel, lights, ornaments and plastic bags before placing the tree at the curb, separate from all other trash, during the two-week collection period.
Residents also can drop their Christmas trees off at the city's Yard Waste Transfer Site, located at the entrance to Plum Creek Park, between 7:15 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. weekdays.
