The City of New Britain is in Connecticut with Hartford, Newington to the northeast, Meriden to the south, Bristol to the west, Milford and Bridgeport to the southwest.

Trash Pick Up Holidays

Here you can see the city-observed holidays.

  • New Year’s Day (January)
  • Memorial Day (May)
  • Independence Day (4th of July)
  • Labor Day (September)
  • Thanksgiving Day (November)
  • Christmas (December)  

During these weeks collection is suspended on the holiday itself, and delayed one day for the rest of the week.  For example if one of these holidays occurred on a Wednesday the Monday and Tuesday collections would occur on their normal trash day, but the Wednesday collection would occur on Thursday, the Thursday collection would occur on Friday, and the Friday collection would occur on Saturday.
