Residential Holiday Schedule and Recycling Information
Although our office may be closed our collection drivers only take two days off during the year: Christmas and New Years day. Both days fall on a Friday this year which means that we will be a day behind on residential collection. Monday and Tuesday p/u will not be affected. Wednesday regular collection p/u will be Thursday, Thursday p/u will be Friday, and Friday p/u will be Saturday. This holiday schedule will be for the week of Christmas and the following week for New Years. The regular collection schedule will resume Monday 1/6/21. This applies to Rockwood Solid Waste and MVS customers.
When recycling holiday wrap and boxes, please remember no ribbon, bows, or packing material that is not paper. Also, no plastic bags or film. Christmas trees are recyclable but must be cut to 6′ in height. If your Christmas tree is not cut and placed inside the Yard Debris cart provided to you, there will be a charge of $3.56 per tree. Many charities will have drop off locations and will accept your tree whole. Watch for one of these locations near you.
Extra garbage may be placed in plastic bags and set next to your garbage can or cart. Please do not use your recycling or yard debris cart as an extra garbage can.
Thank you for your cooperation in making these adjustments during the holidays. Our staff and collection drivers all wish you and your family a very joyous, safe, and warm holiday season.
