Holiday Collection - City of Seattle

Regular collection schedules on these holidays:

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
Presidents Day
Memorial Day
Independence Day (July 4)
Labor Day
Columbus Day
Veterans Day

We will NOT be collecting on these holidays

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

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.
