Collection day changes

Winter green cart schedule starts in November

The seasons are changing and so is your green cart collection. Starting in November, your green cart will be picked up once every other week. Weekly green cart collection will resume in the spring.

Holiday collection schedule changes

There is no bin pick up on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day for single-family homes.

If your blue, green, or black cart collection normally falls on one of these days, your collection day will be three days later on Monday:

  • Christmas Day (Friday, Dec. 25, 2020) pick up will move to Monday, Dec. 28, 2020.
  • New Year’s Day (Friday, Jan. 1, 2021) pick up will move to Monday, Jan. 4, 2021.

Regular Friday collection will resume on Jan. 8, 2021.
