No curbside trash or recycling pickup on Patriots Day

Just a head’s up for those Portland residents who would have been scheduled to get their rubbish picked up on April 16: You’re not.

This is the notice from City Hall, plan accordingly:

The Department of Public Services Solid Waste crews will not collect trash or recycling on Patriots Day, April 16, 2012. Residents who normally receive collection services on Monday will have their trash and recycling collected the Saturday before, April 14. Residents of Peaks Island, Great Diamond Island, and Cliff Island will have their recycling and trash collection the following day, Tuesday, April 17. 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 Patriots Day as well, and will resume normal business hours on Tuesday, April 17, 2012, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
