How do holidays, five week months, or overflow work?
Visit our home page whenever in question due to holidays or weather.
We will note changes there within 24 hours prior to your collection day.
If no notice is listed, then assume we are on normal schedules.
We do NOT take off most “bank” holidays.
We DO take off New Year’s Day, July 4th, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. We will reschedule routes that fall on those holidays.
Note that a month has 4.33 weeks causing there to be an occasional 5th Monday or other weekday. We do not collect on those days.
For example, if your collection is the 4th Monday of each month, do NOT assume the last Monday of the month is your collection day. It will not always be so.
If you occasionally have overflow or miss a collection, simply bag your excess material, tie closed, and place beside your cart for the next scheduled collection.
An additional fee of $10 will be applied to your account and charged on your next invoice. For $20, you can ask for an extra collection between scheduled collections, if one of our routes is near you.
Request a 2nd cart if overflow happens often.
