Holiday Trash Pickup

Five 2017 holidays delay curbside pickup one day. Trash Master LLC of East Haven, the city’s private rubbish contractor, will not pick up rubbish, recyclables, metals or tires on the following days:
  • Memorial Day | Monday, May 29
  • Independence Day | Tuesday, July 4
  • Labor Day | Monday, Sept. 4
  • Thanksgiving | Thursday, Nov. 23
  • Christmas | Monday, Dec. 25
If a holiday falls on a weekday, pickup for that week will move ahead one day. But when a holiday like Thanksgiving falls on a Thursday, only Thursday and Friday’s collections will move up a day. Thanksgiving is also the only holiday that excludes metal and tire pickups in those affected districts. Separate metals and recyclables from regular trash.
