Trash Collection Schedule By Day And Street
Recycling Collection (see below for information on the recycling program)
The collection of recyclables is performed every other week as shown on the calendar accessed by clicking the link below. The calendar also indicates the six (6) holidays that alter the trash and recycling collection schedule (see more information below the link).
Trash and recycling collection service is delayed one day for weeks containing one of 6 observed holidays. The holidays that affect the trash collection schedule include:
New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day when the holiday falls on a weekday (with minor exceptions – see calendar link above). No trash or recycling is collected on these holidays. The trash collection day for those whose scheduled day falls on one of these 6 days occurs the day after the holiday. The scheduled collection day for all others that fall after the holiday is then delayed one day. Collection days prior to a holiday in a given week are unaffected.
