Trash Pick Up Holidays

Here you can see the city-observed holidays.

  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas

If a holiday falls on a weekday, pickup for that week will move ahead one day. But when a holiday like Thanksgiving falls on a Thursday, only Thursday and Friday’s collections will move up a day.

Thanksgiving is also the only holiday that excludes metal pickup in those affected districts. Separate metals and recyclables from regular trash.
