Holiday Trash Pickup

Whether you run a small business or live in a residential area with trash pick-up services, you know how important it is to have your garbage removed. Without removal, trash can soon become overwhelming, unsightly and even unpleasant. Usually trash services occur on a regular schedule. However, with Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years right around the corner, these upcoming holiday's can coincide with your normal trash pick-up. You might be wondering if your garbage will be collected that day.For all of our customers, John's will only be closed on Thursday for Thanksgiving.  All Scheduled pick ups will continue the following day, to make up for the lost day we will pick up on Saturday's. For more information regarding our pick up schedule please reference our collection schedule

If you are looking for general information about your trash pick up during the holidays here are some proactive steps you can take to make sure your trash is removed. 

Contact Your Trash Collector

Whether you're using a private service or your local municipality handles trash collection, give them a call and inquire what their policy is for the upcoming holiday. Some trash collectors may opt to pick-up trash the day before or after, while others might simply wait until the next scheduled day to collect the garbage.

Schedule Another Collection

If a situation arises where the trash will not be collected due to a holiday, ask if they can pick it up at another time. They may charge you a one-time service fee, however, if you operate a business and have an overwhelming trash flow, then it might be well worth the money to have it removed.

Visit Local Municipality Website

Often times, cities and towns update their trash removal schedule on their official website. They will detail how their services will be affected by the upcoming holiday. Visit the website and see if there are any such postings, so you can adjust accordingly. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Holidays affect trash collection for businesses and residents.
  • Contact your trash collector or municipality to find out their holiday policies.
  • Check local municipality websites for updates
