With Memorial Day having arrived, many used the weekend to celebrate with loved ones and friends, honoring the sacrifices of our fallen heroes. While hosting a lively party may seem like the perfect way to pay homage, hosting a major party can lead to quite a mess for the host.
Following the festivities, you may find yourself surrounded by empty cups, confetti, and remnants of your celebration. Depending on the size of your celebration, you might end up having more trash to take out than on a normal week and also find yourself wondering whether you should worry about hauling your trash cans out for trash pickup on Memorial Day or if the holiday might cause a delay in pickup.
Is there trash pickup on Memorial Day, May 29, 2023?
Trash pickup schedules can differ based on the location and waste management service. In certain regions, holidays like Memorial Day may impact pickup. Although most waste management services operate on holidays, some may have altered schedules or skip pickups on certain occasions. It is recommended that you visit the website or contact your local waste management provider to obtain accurate information about trash pickup schedules during Memorial Day. They can provide the latest information for your specific area.
There are many cities that do not have trash pickup on the holiday which results in trash being picked up a day late in the affected cities for those who have Monday trash pickup.
In the past this has included many big cities including New York City; however, New York has announced there will be trash pickup on Memorial Day for the first time this year. With New York City changing its strategy, there are likely other cities that might follow its lead which means it has never been more important to check with your local trash provider to confirm their holiday pickup schedule.
