Holiday & Special Events Collection Schedule
Augusta-Richmond County observes the following holidays:
- New Year’s Day
- Memorial Day
- Fourth of July
- Labor Day
Under our new operating schedule, if a customer’s collection day falls on a holiday, services will resume the next day. Friday collections will be picked up on Saturday. Customers will always receive collection service twice a week, even during holiday weeks!
Remember, holidays don’t offset both collection days, only the collection day that falls on any of the above-mentioned holidays. Your collection resumes the next regularly scheduled collection day.
If the Fourth of July falls on a Monday, and your collection days are Monday and Thursday, your garbage and yard waste will be picked up on Tuesday. Your regular service will resume on Thursday.
If Christmas falls on a Friday, and your collection days are Tuesday and Friday, your garbage, recycling, and bulk waste will be picked up on Saturday. Your regular service will resume on the following Tuesday.
Cleanups & Special Events
Summer and winter neighborhood clean-ups and other special event schedules may be observed and announced to customers as these events approach.
