No trash collection on the Mondays after Christmas and New Year’s Day

CLEVELAND – The City’s regular trash collection schedule will be delayed during the two weeks following the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. Each holiday falls on a Sunday so the City of Cleveland will observe the following Mondays as holidays for trash collectors and other City employees.

Trash will not be collected on Monday, December 26, 2016 the day after Christmas or on Monday, January 2, 2017, the day after New Year’s Day. The regular trash collection schedule will be delayed one day for the remainder of both weeks. The regular trash collection schedule will resume on Monday, January 9, 2017.

The City has not scheduled a separate pick up for discarded Christmas trees. These should be striped of lights and ornamentation then placed on tree lawns for pick up on regular trash collection days.
