Streets Division drop-off sites also closed

In observance of the New Year’s Day holiday, the Streets Division will not be performing trash, recycling, large item, or other solid waste collections on Monday, January 2, 2023.

Streets Division offices and drop-off sites will also be closed on this date.

Trash & Recycling Collection
If your trash and recycling is collected on Mondays by the Streets Division, you should place your scheduled cart(s) to the curb for collection by 6:30am on Tuesday, January 3, 2023.

Only residents that have a Monday collection day will experience a delay in refuse and recycling pickup services.

If you have a Tuesday collection of trash and recycling by the Streets Division, you should also place your scheduled cart(s) out for emptying by 6:30am on January 3.

If you set your carts out after 6:30am for their scheduled pickup, you may miss your collection opportunity. You will need to wait until the next scheduled pickup day to have your carts emptied.

If you are unsure if the holiday will cause your trash & recycling to be delayed a day, consult your collection schedule. You can download the one for your home today by entering your address into the form at

Large Item Collection
Due to the holiday, large item collection will get underway on Tuesday, January 3, 2023 for residents who submitted work orders to set out items on Sunday, January 1, 2023.

As a reminder, all large item collections must be scheduled in advance by submitted a work order.

You should set the items out on the date you selected in the work order – not earlier. Crews do not provide early pickup.
