During the week of a holiday, garbage and curbside recycling collection schedules for that holiday week will change. As a reminder of these changes, the city places holiday garbage schedules on our website, our Facebook and Twitter pages, on local radio stations and in local newspapers. We hope to alleviate some of this confusion by letting you know the scheduled holidays when garbage and curbside recycling collection schedules will change.
