Collections Delayed on Holidays: Garbage and recycling pickups for residential customers are delayed until the following business day. No other day’s collections are effected. Thus if you have your trash collected on a Thursday, your trash will not be collected on Thanksgiving Day; rather it will be collected on the day after Thanksgiving. Also if your trash is collected on Friday normally, it will be collected on Friday right after Thanksgiving. That is, your trash collection schedule will be affected only if your trash is to be collected on the day that one of the above five holidays is observed.
Holidays on Weekends: We observe the above holidays on the day that they are observed nationally. That is, if Christmas falls on a Saturday and the holiday is observed the day before (Friday), we also observe that Friday. Your trash would be collected the next business day which, in this case, would be the following Monday.
Commercial Garbage Collection Exception: All of our routes are not run on these holidays except for some commercial trash collection on occasion. Some of our front-loading garbage dumpsters may be collected a little before, on, or a little after the officially observed holiday in order help ease the disruptions caused by the holiday collection schedule.
Recycling Center Schedule: The recycling center is normally open for Aluminum Can buyback on Wednesdays [4:00 to 5:00] and Saturdays [11:00 to 2:00]. The recycling center is closed if either Independence Day, Christmas, or New Year’s Day fall on Wednesday or Saturday. It is also closed if one of the observed holidays fall on Thursday or Sunday; for example, the recycling center will be closed on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving as Thanksgiving falls on Thursday.
