Holidays That Will Change the Weekly Rubbish/Recycling Schedule:

  • New Years Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day (July 4th)
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas

The Rubbish/Recycle collection schedule will not change for any other holidays, even if the City Hall is not open to the public. If the observed holiday falls on a weekday, there will be no collection that day and the remaining days of collection will be one day later than normal. For example, if the holiday is on a Monday, the weekly rubbish/recycling collection will begin on Tuesday and finish on Saturday. Therefore if your collection day is normally Tuesday, for that week it will be collected on Wednesday. If one of these holidays falls on a Sunday, it is typically observed the next day, Monday, resulting in a one day delayed Holiday collection schedule. There is no collection on Thanksgiving so the trash normally collected on Thursdays will be collected on Friday, Friday’s routes will subsequently be collected on Saturday.
