If the holiday falls on or before your collection day (Monday - Friday), service will be delayed by one day for the remainder of that week with Friday residents being serviced on Saturday.

 ***Please note that if a Holiday falls on a weekend (Saturday or Sunday), the collection day is NOT  affected and your trash will be collected on your normal collection day***
