Holiday Schedule

There will be no pickup on the following holidays:
New Year's Day
Memorial Day
Independence Day
Labor Day
Thanksgiving Day
Christmas Day

Routes will be pushed back by one day following a holiday
If a collection day falls on a holiday, services will resume the next day. Friday collections will be picked up on Saturday. Customers will always receive collection service twice a week, even during holiday weeks! Remember, holidays don’t offset both collection days, only the collection day that falls on any of the above-mentioned holidays. Your collection resumes the next regularly scheduled collection day. For example, if Independence Day falls on a Monday, and your collection days are Monday and Thursday, your garbage and yard waste will be picked up on Tuesday. Your regular service will resume on Thursday. If Christmas falls on a Friday, and your collection days are Tuesday and Friday, your garbage, recycling and bulk waste will be picked up on Saturday. Your regular service will resume on the following Tuesday. Summer and winter neighborhood cleanups and other special event schedules may be observed and announced to customers as these events approach.
