Trash Pick-Up Holiday Schedule and No-Tag Weeks

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

If a holiday falls during the week, trash and recycling collection takes place on the day following the holiday, and collection for the remaining days of the week also takes place one day later than usual. Friday trash is collected on Saturday during such weeks.

No-tag ("trash amnesty") weeks happen twice a year and on special occasions. During those weeks, residents can put out up to 12 bags curbside without any additional tags as long as each bag weighs less than 40 pounds. Regular trash rules apply. No hazardous waste, bulky items or leaf and brush will be collected.

No collection occurs on the following holidays:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Day
  • Presidents Day - Feb. 17
  • Memorial Day - May 25
  • Independence Day falls on a Saturday this year and City offices will be closed on Friday. However, collection will still happen on Friday, July 3. There is no impact due to the holiday this year.
    No-tag collection week is July 6-10.
