Reminder: No Garbage, Recycling Collection on Monday, Jan. 16
Friday January 13, 2012
– A reminder to residents in the Urban Services District (old city limits) that there will be no garbage, recycling or yard waste collection on Monday, Jan 16, 2012 due to the Martin Luther King Day holiday. Service for residents with Monday collection will resume the following week, Monday, Jan. 23, 2012.
Residents with Tuesday-Friday garbage and recycling collections days should place their items out for pickup on their regular collection days.
Typically, following a Monday holiday, garbage, yard waste and recycling collections for the remainder of the week is delayed a day, however, there will be no holiday “day-delay” service next week.
Metro Public Works officials made the decision to eliminate the day delay service following only the New Year’s Day and Martin Luther King Day holidays, back in May during the city’s budget hearings. It will save an estimated $50,000 in overtime spending.
Residents outside the Urban Services District should contact their private waste hauler for their holiday schedule.
