Holiday 2019 collection changes

There is no 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 two days earlier these weeks:

  • Christmas Day (Wednesday, Dec. 25, 2019) pick up will move to Monday, Dec. 23, 2019.
  • New Year's Day (Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2020) pick up will move to Monday, Dec. 30, 2019.

There are no changes to collection for Christmas Eve and Boxing Day.

Locations serviced by a private waste management company should check with their property's service provider for holiday schedules. 

For businesses and multi-family dwellings serviced by The City, please see the Commercial Collection page.
