City adjusts trash pickup for holidays

Marion trash and recycling customers will have to make some adjustments to accommodate a revised schedule for Christmas and New Years Day weeks.

With both holidays falling on Mondays, but with Dec. 25 and 26 off for Christmas and only Jan. 1 for New Year’s Day, pickups will be different each week, city administrator Roger Holter said.

Crews will devote their time to commercial trash and recycling Dec. 27. Residential trash will be picked up Dec. 28 and 29 instead of recycling.

“For most people, picking up trash that week is going to be more important than recycling,” Holter said.

When pickups resume Jan. 2, the schedule will change again.

“We’ll move Monday’s pickup to Tuesday and Tuesday’s to Wednesday, and they’ll get all the commercial trash as well on Wednesday,” Holter said. “The 4th and 5th is when we’ll be picking up all the residential recycling from Christmas week and New Year’s week.”
