The city has not updated its holiday trash schedule for 2019, but here is the 2018 version., in which the only holidays affected are Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

Trash and recycling containers should be placed curbside by 5:30 a.m. on the day of pickup. They should be 4 feet apart and 15 feet from any obstruction (cars, light posts, etc.).

Bulk Trash Placement

Bulk material can be put out no more than “nine days prior to the week of collection.” Loose material must be boxed or bagged (they’re not going to rake things up for you). There are several items not accepted, including (but not limited to) tires, hazardous waste and appliances that use refrigerants. See the list and other rules.
