Current Operating Status:
Trash, recycling and yard material collections are running normally; please follow your regularly-scheduled collection days for all materials (including the usual holiday schedule). Residents are reminded that each of the six collection holidays throughout the year now follow a "slide" make-up schedule. The second round of 2023 bulk item collections runs from July 8 through December 29; check your schedule to find your specific assigned bulk day.
Understanding Your Collection Schedule
If there are Ys on your schedule, yard materials will be collected separately for recycling from April 1 through the last Y day on your schedule each year. In all other cases, yard materials will be collected with trash. For example, if your last Y day in a year is December 1, yard materials will be collected with trash from December 2 through March 31.
If there are no Ys on your schedule, yard materials will be collected with trash year-round. See Bureau of Solid Waste Management collection collection regulations for specific set-out procedures.
