About your trash collection schedule:

Some residents are assigned a “color” that establishes when their collection day will be. If you reside in a “color” collection zone, your collection day moves forward one day after every observed holiday. These “color zones” are: Navy, Pink, Ruby, Gold, or Gray.
If you’re unsure of your next collection day, you’re encouraged to call the Color Collection hotline, 24 hours, 7 days a week, to find out your collection schedule.
NAVY customers can call 614-645-NAVY (6289);
PINK customers can call 614-645-PINK (7465);
RUBY customers can call 614-645-RUBY (7829);
GOLD customers can call 614-645-GOLD (4653);
GRAY customers can call 614-645-GRAY (4729).

In lieu of a “color” zone, some residents are assigned a two-day window in which their containers are to be serviced. Regular collection typically occurs on the first day of the two day window. During the week of an observed holiday, however, service will occur on day two of the two-day window, if regular collection falls on or after the observed holiday.
