Trash Pick Up Holidays
Here you can see the city-observed holidays.
- New Year’s Day
- Memorial Day
- Independence Day

Whenever one of these holidays occurs on a weekday, the collection schedule will be delayed one day for the remainder of the week. For example, since Thanksgiving falls on Thursday, the collection day would be moved to Friday and the collection normally made on Friday would be on Saturday. The final collection for the week would be on Saturday.
