Thanksgiving Collection Schedule

Our business office will be closed Thursday (Nov. 23) & Friday (Nov. 24). Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday areas will be collected on regular schedule that week. Thursday and Friday areas will be collected one day late (excluding downtown night routes).

Food Scraps & Yard Debris Curbside Collection Service continues through Dec. 1. Please store your cart somewhere safe during the winter months. Yard waste collection will resume Feb. 26, 2018.

Happy Holidays from all of us at Solid Waste Collection!
