The upcoming Columbus Day holiday on Monday, October 8, will not cause any delays in trash, recycling and yard waste services provided to the 34 communities served by the Mid Michigan Waste Authority.

Residents should prepare and set out materials on their regularly scheduled collection day during the holiday week.

The list of holidays that do impact solid waste pickup are: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. Any communities with service that falls on the holiday and those that are serviced on the weekdays after the holiday will have collection delayed by one day. Service is not impacted when the holiday falls on a weekend.
