Changes in the recycling and yard waste collection schedule will be
implemented effective March 3, 2014. Yard waste and recycling will be collected
on the same day, every other week. During the week of an observed holiday,
if your collection day falls on or after the holiday, your collection will be delayed one day.
(Friday collections will be picked up on Saturday.)
Your collection day will then return to its normally scheduled day the following week.

About your collection schedule:
Some customers are assigned a color that determines their trash collection day;
some customers are assigned a two-day window.
Your yard waste and recycling collection day may be different from your trash collection day.
There are no collections on holidays observed by the City of Columbus. The observed holidays are:
New Year's Day, Martin Luther King Day, Presidents’ Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day,
Labor Day, Columbus Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day
Collection days are not affected by Good Friday or Veterans Day.
More about holiday collection for trash only:
For those assigned a color for trash collection.
Your collection day moves forward one day after every observed holiday.
These customers can call their collection-color hotline, (614) 645-[YOUR COLOR];
example: 645-NAVY (6289), to determine their current collection day.

For those assigned a two day window:
Holidays do not affect trash collection days for residents using a shared trash container (dumpster, compactor or 300-gallon bin).
For customers assigned a wheeled trash container with a two day collection window,
regular collection typically occurs on day one of the two day window. During the week of an observed holiday, collection will occur on day two of the two-day window if regular collection falls on or after the holiday.
