Trash Pick Up Holidays

Here you can see the city-observed holidays.

  • New Year’s Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

If the holiday falls on a weekend day, there will be no interruption in service. Otherwise, pickup will be one day later for the week following the observed holiday.

For Example: Thanksgiving is always on a Thursday; therefore the schedule change would be as follows:

Residents with a Thursday scheduled collection would be picked up on Friday and residents with a Friday scheduled collection would be picked up on Saturday. Collection  resumes the regular schedule the following Monday.
