City Resumes Collection of Trash & Recycling on Holidays

trash and recycling collection alert

The City of Portland is pleased to announce that it is resuming the collection of trash and recycling on holidays. The updated holiday collection schedule can be found here. Those with Friday collection on Christmas and New Year’s Day will have their trash and recycling collected on the following Saturday. 

Originally approved as part of the FY21 budget due to budget constraints, the City had been  collecting trash on holidays, but not recycling. Due to a number of factors, including salary savings within the Public Works Department, the City has determined it can now resume collection of both trash and recycling on the remaining holidays in 2020 and 2021.  

Please visit our Trash and Recycling Collection Web App to find what day of the week your trash and recycling is collected. Residents can also check out the Trash and Recycling Collection App User Guide.
