Holiday Trash Information & Schedule

 


Pickup Days Shift by One Day for Every Zone

Our contract with Waste Connections Hauler, which collects on a 5-day-a-week schedule, contains a provision that moves collection one day from the day the holiday occurs. For example, since Memorial Day is a Monday, all collection days that week move over one day, including Friday’s collection moving to Saturday. On the other hand, if Independence Day falls on a Thursday, the only trash and collection days affected that week will be Thursday and Friday, each shifting over one day. While there is no normal Saturday pickup, the contractor collects on Saturdays only during holiday weeks.  In each of these cases, normal routes will be resumed on the Monday after the holiday week.

The 6 holidays during which Waste Connections implements the shifting of days include:
  • New Year’s Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day - Thursday pickup will be Friday - Friday pickup will be Saturday.
  • Christmas Day
Waste Connections will pick up Christmas trees at the curb. If the tree is flocked please wrap tree in plastic before placing it out at the curb.
