Murphy’s Thanksgiving trash and recycling schedule
Pickup shifts one day on Turkey Thursday and Leftover Friday
MURPHY (November 12, 2015) Trash and recycling collection in Murphy for Thanksgiving Day and the day after will shift for residents who are on Thursday and Friday pickup, says Candy McQuiston, Customer Service Manager.
“Progressive Waste Solutions will close their operations on Thanksgiving Day,” she said. “The collection crews and office workers will have the opportunity to spend time away from work on that day. That means that service on Thanksgiving Day will be shifted over to Friday, and Friday’s pickup shifted to Saturday.”
Residents with normal Thursday pickup will receive pickup service on Friday, Nov. 27, and those residents with regular Friday pickup will receive service on Saturday, Nov. 28. Curbside pickup will occur at the normal time.
“These changes are only for Thanksgiving Day and the Friday after,” added McQuiston. “We go back to normal pick up the following week.”
Murphy City offices are also closed on Thanksgiving Day and the day after. Public safety personnel will be at their usual strength and emergency crews will be available as needed.
