Public Works Announces Improved Holiday Service for Recycling
Montrose, CO – Beginning with the New Year’s holiday, the city is adjusting its approach to rescheduling recycling collections that are disrupted by city-observed holidays. Instead of requiring customers to wait for service until their next scheduled recycling day, collections scheduled to occur on a city-observed holiday will take place on Friday of the same week. Accordingly, recycling collections that would normally occur on Monday, January 1 will instead occur on Friday, January 5.
“While our practice of delaying recycling collections for two weeks was workable for most of our customers, it created a hardship for some,” said Street Division Superintendent Ryan Cushenan. “The majority of city-observed holidays occur on Mondays, leaving customers on the Monday recycling routes to deal with an excessive number of missed collection days. We will minimize inconvenience to our customers by providing an alternative collection day during the same week.”
Additional information about the city’s Single Stream Recycling Program, including collection schedules, routes, and additional recycling services are available at CityofMontrose.org/Recycling
or call 970-240-1480.
The city’s arrangements for alternative trash
collection days during holiday weeks will remain unchanged. Detailed information about alternative collection schedules are available at CityofMontrose.org/Holiday
For New Year’s Day, trash
collection for residences located south of San Juan Ave and Highway 50 will occur Tuesday, January 2, and residences located north of San Juan Ave and Highway 50 will be served on Wednesday, January 3.
Alternative trash and recycling collection days apply only to customers whose normal collections fall on New Year’s Day. All non-holiday collection days will not be affected.
