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.

Regarding City-Observed Holidays:

Your collection day moves forward one day after every observed holiday. Trash, recycling or yard waste services will not take place on City-observed Holidays. For 2016, these days and dates are:
Friday, January 1, 2016 (New Year’s Day);
Monday, January 18, 2016 (Martin Luther King Day);
Monday, February 15, 2016 (Presidents’ Day);
Monday, May 30, 2016 (Memorial Day);
Monday, July 4, 2016 (Independence Day);
Monday, September 5, 2016 (Labor Day);
Monday, October 10, 2016 (Columbus Day);
Thursday, November 24, 2016 (Thanksgiving Day);
Monday, December 26, 2016 (Due to December 25 falling on a Sunday this year, the “City-observed Holiday” will be Monday, December 26, 2016).


Collection days are NOT affected by Good Friday (Friday, March 25, 2016) or by Veterans Day (Friday, November 11, 2016).


Recycling and yard waste collection occurs on the same day, every other week. Residents are assigned to either Zone A or Zone B for each day of the 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.
