Special Reminders & Tips for Holidays

Please remember that garbage, recycling and yard debris are not collected on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day. If your normal service day is Thursday, your collection will shift to Friday during the weeks of Christmas and New Year’s Day holidays. Friday collections will instead occur on Saturdays those weeks. All other collection days are as usual. Have questions about recycling special holiday items? Use the Recycling A-Z App or web wizard to find possible options. Find more holiday reuse and other recycling tips here.

Check the Talking Trash page for the latest news about what's happening to support your recycling, reusing and reducing efforts! Reminder: Fall leaf coupons end Dec. 20.
