Thanksgiving Will Delay Trash Pickup

Holiday Will Delay Trash, Recycling & Yard Waste Collection

Because of the Thanksgiving holiday, trash, recycling and yard waste collection for both Thursday, Nov. 28 and Friday, Nov. 29, 2013 will be delayed by one day.

Also, Thanksgiving Residential Trash Amnesty is Nov 30-Dec 6, 2013. This means that residents may place sealed plastic trash bags next to their approved City-provided cart on their collection day that occurs during this time period.
