Corvias makes the disposal of your real Christmas tree easy. Just place the old tree on the curb with the rest of the trash on your scheduled trash day. French Creek, Moose Lake, Raven's Wood, Century Park South and Broadway trash pickup is on Monday. Century Park North and Galaxy Height trash pickup is on Wednesday. Place the tree with any other bulk trash items before 6:30 a.m. on the morning of your scheduled trash service and we’ll take care of the rest. Don’t forget to remove all tinsel, lights, and other decorations before discarding your tree!
Trash pick-up on Monday December 26th and Monday January 2nd will occur as normal!
As of December 8th, snowmobile season on Eielson AFB is open! As responsible snow mobile operators, please be careful as you drive through housing to get to the authorized riding areas on the base. The speed limit in the housing area is 5 mph. Driving a snow mobile on streets or parking areas in housing should be limited to crossing the area perpendicular to the traffic flow. Keep our neighborhoods beautiful by parking snow machines and other recreational vehicles in a neat and orderly fashion in the driveway or on section of snow-covered lawn. In addition please remember that trailers cannot be parked in family housing longer than 48 hours.
A friendly reminder from Corvias; snow removal from the driveway and sidewalk is the resident’s responsibility, unless the resident is enrolled in the Deployed Airman Snow Removal Program. According to the Resident Responsibility Guide, hard pack ice on the driveway is acceptable as long as the ice is relatively flat, not slippery and does not pose a hazard to property or people. Residents should also refrain from pushing snow from the driveway into the road. Pushing the snow into the street creates a hard-pack bump that creates a hazard for drivers and pedestrians. Do not use ice melt or salt on your walks or driveway; it can damage the roadway, rust vehicles and create ice pot holes. Remove all vehicles from the street during snowfalls so that snow can be removed of properly, you don’t want to get snowed in!
These simple steps will help keep our neighborhood streets, sidewalks and drives safe for everyone.

Still using plastic grocery bags at the Commissary? Consider bringing your own reusable bags. It takes a 15-year-old tree to produce 700 grocery bags.
