I found a flyer on my trash can this week announcing the holiday schedule garbage collection schedule. If you are serviced by the City of Memphis Solid Waste Management, Republic Services, or Waste Connections, your trash and recycling pick up days may be different the week of Christmas. Specifically, many customers will have a pick up later in the week than normal. Some customers will also be affected by a schedule change the following week due to New Year's Day.
The City of Memphis website has a handy garbage pickup schedule which will show you all the changes for this holiday season, as well as holidays in the coming year. You might even want to print it out so you don't miss a trash day--especially this month when you are likely to have extra trash from wrapping paper, boxes, etc.
