What Day is My Pick Up

Wondering what day the trash and recycling is collected on a particular street? The Trash and Recycling Collection Day by Street (PDF) will give you the collection day for any street.

Holiday Trash Collection

There will be no trash collection on the following holidays only:

  • Christmas Day
  • New Year's Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • July 4th

These holidays will cause a 1 day delay in collection. For example, if Christmas falls on a Wednesday there will be no collection on Wednesday. Instead, the Wednesday route will be collected on Thursday, the Thursday route on Friday and the Friday route on Saturday. Trash collection will not be affected by these holidays if they fall on either a Saturday or Sunday.
