Refuse Collection Schedule Changes due to Holiday

In observance of the Columbus Day holiday on Monday, October 10th, please note these important changes to the refuse and recycling schedule next week. All city-collected refuse will be serviced Tuesday through Friday.  Additionally, residents should be advised of potential changes to the Blue Cart Recycling collection based on their service provider.

 ·        The Department of Streets and Sanitation will collect all refuse Tuesday through Friday.  Residents should ensure all black refuse carts are accessible throughout the week of collection, not solely on their regular day of collection. 

 ·        The Department of Streets and Sanitation (Zones 2 and 4) will collect recycling Tuesday through Friday.  Again, residents should ensure all Blue Recycling Carts are accessible throughout the week of collection. 

 ·        Privately collected Blue Recycling Carts will be collected Monday through Friday.   Residents with private-service should continue to put out Blue Recycling Carts throughout the week, according to their typical schedule.

 ·        Sims (Zone 5) will collect Monday through Friday.

·        Waste Management (Zones 1, 3 and 6) will collect Monday through Friday.
