Veterans Day

Collection Holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year

We will NOT be collecting on these holidays

  • Thanksgiving (4th Thur in November),
  • Christmas (December 25), and
  • New Year's Day (January 1).

If your regular collection day falls on Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's Day, your service will be delayed one day. If your collection day comes later in the week after collection has been delayed because of a weekday holiday, your service will also be one day later that week.

If these holidays fall on a weekend, regular residential collection schedules apply.

Thanksgiving Example: Since Thanksgiving falls on a Thursday:

  • Residents whose garbage and recycling is usually collected on Thursday have Friday service the day after Thanksgiving.
  • Residents whose regular day is Friday have Saturday service after Thanksgiving. Regular collection schedules resume the next Monday.
