Independence Day Holiday Will Affect Trash and Recycling Schedules in Harrison West

columbus-recycling-binsCity trash service in Columbus will not be provided on Thursday, July 4, 2013, in observance of the Independence Day Holiday. Observance of the holiday will prompt changes in the collection schedule for City regular trash in Columbus as noted below.


For residents assigned a collection color:


  • Collection of trash in color-coded collection areas will rotate forward by one day the week of the Independence Day Holiday as follows:
  • Thursday, July 4:        No Collection
  • Friday, July 5:          Gold
  • Monday, July 8:  Gray
  • Tuesday, July 9:         Navy
  • Wednesday, July 10:      Pink
  • Thursday, July 11:       Ruby

** For Harrison West residents, this means Trash and Recycling will be picked up on Friday, July 5th. We will go back to normal Thursday schedule the following week for yard waste pickup.

The color-coded schedule will rotate again on Labor Day, Monday, September 2, 2013.
