Holiday Garbage Schedules:

I don't know about you, but in our town, holidays introduce little variations into the garbage pickup schedule. I used to worry about this a lot, as I hated to put out garbage that would not be picked up, but also hated to miss a pickup. But now I have a simple rule: when it's a holiday, don't put your garbage out. Let's consider some scenarios:

  • The garbage men have the day off. No point putting out your garbage.
  • The garbage men have to work until they're finished collecting the garbage, then they get the rest of the day off. Might as well help them finish early. Don't put out your garbage.
  • The garbage men have to work all day on the holiday. Lighten their load, it's a holiday! Don't put out your garbage.
