Trash Pick Up Holidays

Here you can see the city-observed holidays.

Residential collection may be delayed due to these and other holidays: Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. As a general rule, holidays push our residential pickup schedules back one day with regular schedules resuming the following week.

Have bulky items the city won’t pick up? You need a junk removal service.

If you have large items that the city won’t take from you, you may need to hire a junk removal service.

Junk removal services are not be as picky about the items they’re collecting so if the city won’t take the item, this may be your best bet. There’s usually a fee involved with junk removal but most companies can tell you ahead of time approximately what it’s going to cost.

There are a number of junk removal services in Meridian and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.
