Holiday Collection Schedule
Except for weeks that include a holiday, the City collects household trash on Mondays and Tuesdays and collects recycling on Thursdays and Fridays. To find out which day your household trash and your recycling is collected, click here.
If a holiday falls on Monday, Monday’s household trash is collected on Tuesday and Tuesday’s household trash is collected on Wednesday. Similarly, if a holiday falls on a Friday, Thursday’s recycling will be collected on Wednesday and Friday’s collection will be collected on Thursday.
As well, from the first week of March to the first week of December, the city collects yard waste on what is commonly called Green Wednesdays. But on weeks that include a holiday, Wednesdays are needed for household trash or recycling collections. Therefore, there is no Green Wednesday yard waste collection during a holiday week.
Special bulk collections are normally scheduled Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. During holiday weeks, however, bulk collection schedules may be limited. Please keep this in mind when planning your bulk collection requests.
