Holiday Trash Pickup

Holidays that fall on a weekend will not affect your normal trash pickup day. Five 2017 holidays will delay curbside pickup one day. All American Waste of New Haven, the city’s private rubbish contractor, will not pick up rubbish, recyclables, metals or tires on the following days:
  • Memorial Day | Monday, May 29
  • Independence Day | Tuesday, July 4
  • Labor Day | Monday, Sept. 4
  • Thanksgiving | Thursday, Nov. 23
  • Christmas | Monday, Dec. 25
If a holiday falls on a weekday, pickup for that week will move ahead one day. But when a holiday like Thanksgiving falls on a Thursday, only Thursday and Friday’s collections will move up a day. Thanksgiving is also the only holiday that excludes metal and tire pickups in those affected districts. Separate metals and recyclables from regular trash.
