(Mon., Dec. 5, 2011) The City's Department of Environmental Services reminds residents that refuse collection workers will be observing the Christmas and New Year's holidays Monday December 26, 2011, and Monday, January 2, 2012.  Therefore, the City will not be collecting trash, recyclables and green waste on those dates. 


         Communities that use the 3-cart collection system, with once-a-week refuse and once-a-week recycling pickup Mondays, December 26 and January 2, are asked to leave gray carts curbside until serviced.


         Recycling days that fall on these holidays will NOT be made up.  Please hold mixed recyclables (blue cart) and green waste (green cart) for the next scheduled pickup date.


         If residents are on twice-a-week manual refuse collection, please hold items for the next scheduled pickup.


      Also, all City Convenience Centers, Transfer Stations, H-POWER and Waimanalo Gulch Sanitary Landfill will be closed Christmas Day and New Year's Day (Dec. 25 & Jan. 1).  However, all refuse facilities will be open Mondays, Dec. 26 and Jan. 2.


      Christmas Day and New Year's Day are the only two holidays observed by ENV refuse workers.
