Garbage Pick Up Holidays

Here you can see the city-observed holidays.

When the Township is closed there will be no trash, recyclable or yard waste collection. Trash and recyclables collection will occur on the next business day. Yard waste collection will resume the next regularly scheduled collection date. 

For example, if a holiday occurs on a Monday, residents whose trash/recyclables are collected on Monday will be collected on Tuesday; however, if the holiday occurs on a Friday, trash/recyclables collection will occur the following Monday (the next business day).  

Please note, the day after a holiday the Township does single-stream recycling. This means your recyclables will be collected TOGETHER. Your items are still being recycled and are taken to a site for separation. This is done to maximize the use of trucks and allows for additional pick-ups throughout the day.

The Township is closed and there will be no trash collection on the following days:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
  • Presidents’ Day
  • Good Friday
  • Memorial Day
  • Juneteenth 
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Columbus Day
  • Veterans Day 
  • Thanksgiving Day 
  • Christmas Day
