City Says Extra Holiday Trash OK

(City of Akron) Effective Wednesday, January 2, 2019, continuing through Monday, January 6, the City of Akron Sanitation/Curb Service Division will permit residents to place extra trash, in the form of wrapping paper and boxes alongside their trash carts, on their normal collection day. 

"Each year we provide this extra service to our residents after the holidays, most of whom have additional items to discard or recycle,” Mayor Dan Horrigan said. "This particular pickup is intended for extra holiday items, like wrappings and boxes, which we realize won't all fit in one or maybe even two trash carts." 

Following the holidays, the City will also collect residents' holiday trees left alongside trash carts on their normal collection day. As always, customers who wish to put out a larger volume of other household trash are asked to contact the Mayor’s Action Center at 3-1-1, (330) 375-2311 or www.akronohio.gov/311 to pre-schedule one of the three special bulk pickups allotted to each household, each year.

Please note, there will be no curb service on Tuesday, December 25 (in observance of Christmas Day) or Tuesday, January 1 (in observance of New Year’s Day). Curb service will resume Wednesday through Saturday, on a one-day delay.
