Holiday Collection Schedule

Refuse, Large Item & Recycling

The Streets Division does not provide refuse, large item, recycling, brush, or leaf/yard waste collection on City holidays.

Those holidays are:

  • New Year's Day
  • Martin Luther King Jr.. Holiday
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day (July 4th)
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • The Friday after Thanksgiving
  • Christmas Day

The Streets Division provides refuse and recycling collection for the districts impacted by the holiday on the next working day.

For example, all residents within the Monday collection district will have their refuse and recycling collected on the Tuesday following a Monday holiday.

During holiday weeks, the only residents impacted are the ones with their collection day scheduled for the holiday. For example, if you have a Wednesday collection day, and the Monday of a particular week is a holiday, your Wednesday collection of refuse or recycling should happen as scheduled.

Exception: The two-day Thanksgiving Holiday

  • Residents in the Thursday refuse district will have their material collected the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.
  • Residents in the Friday District will have their material collected on the following Monday.
