City will collect trash on Veteran’s Day

The city’s Environmental Services Department’s new Holiday Trash Collection Schedule kicks in on Thursday, Veteran’s Day.

Starting with this week’s schedule the city’s trash, recycling and yard waste collection schedule will no longer observe Veteran’s Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, President’s Day and Cesar Chavez Day. Trash, recycling and yard waste collection will continue during those holiday weeks on the regular Monday through Friday schedules.

Collection will continue to be delayed by one day following the other observed holidays including Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day holidays. (However, in December 2010, collection will occur on Dec. 24 and Dec. 31.)

Residents are able to view information regarding changes to collection schedules by visiting the ESD Web site at

The site also offers access to a printable 2010/2011 Curbside Recycling Calendar, which provides residents with the types of City collection services offered at their addresses and lists what can and cannot be recycled in their blue recycling bin. It also includes the holiday schedules.
