No trash pickup in Portland on Presidents Day

Here’s an announcement from City Hall regarding curbside trash and recycling pickup — which won’t happen on Feb. 20, Presidents Day. The following city blurb will explain what to do if Monday is typically your day to get the garbage taken away:

The Department of Public Services Solid Waste crews will not collect trash or recycling on Presidents Day, February 20, 2012.  Residents who normally receive collection services on Monday will have their trash and recycling collected this Saturday, February 18th. Residents of Peaks Island, Great Diamond Island, and Cliff Island will have their recycling and trash collection the following day, Tuesday, February 21st. All items should be out by 6:30 a.m. to ensure collection. If residents have further questions about their trash/recycling collection, they can contact the Recycling Hotline at 756-8189.

The Riverside Recycling Facility will be closed on Presidents Day as well, and will resume normal business hours on Tuesday, February 21, 2012, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
