HOLIDAY SERVICE: There is no recycling collection on the following six holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July/Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. Collection of recycling will be delayed one (1) day if an above-referenced holiday occurs on any Monday through Friday of a holiday week. If the holiday falls on the weekend, service will remain on a normal schedule and will not be delayed at all.



APPLIANCES CONTAINING REFRIGERANT: Items such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, water coolers, or any other appliance containing refrigerant will only be picked up if the item has a sticker certifying the refrigerant has been removed. If there is no sticker certifying removal, the item will not be picked up due to laws prohibiting disposal without certification that the refrigerant has been removed. It is suggested that you have the company delivering the new appliance dispose of the old appliance to save on the removal cost of the refrigerant.
