[ARCHIVED] Waste Collection: Holiday and Weather Service

The holiday season and potential for winter weather can create changes for your garbage and recycling service.


No collection occurs on Christmas or New Years Day. If your collection day falls on Tuesday or later in the week, your collection will be one day later that week. Learn more here.

Winter storms could make it unsafe to collect your curbside containers. To find out about temporary service changes:

  • Visit for service updates and information on temporary collection points.
  • Check your voicemail for a message from Recology CleanScapes about service changes.
  • Monitor the City’s social media accounts for service updates.


If your service schedule is disrupted, your containers will be collected when it is safe to do so, typically on your next collection day.


Recology CleanScapes crews place carts upright with the lids on after collection, but carts may topple on icy surfaces or with heavy winds.


Before taking a vacation, please notify Recology CleanScapes to suspend your service.


Lastly, please be aware of extra packaging and materials during the holiday season. If you cannot reduce or reuse, then please check to see what can be recycled.
