Trash Pick Up Holidays
Here you can see the city-observed holidays.
- Memorial Day
- Independence Day
- Labor Day
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.
