 Holiday Collection

On City of Santa Fe-observed holidays, there will be no residential trash and recycling collection. The collection scheduled for a holiday will move to the next day of the week, and any of the remaining collection days move forward as well (depending on what day the holiday falls on).

  • 2022 Holiday Example 1: Thanksgiving Day will be observed Thursday, November 23. ESD Operators would work on Friday to collect Thursday’s routes; no other routes that week would be affected.
  • 2022 Holiday Example 2: City offices will be closed on Monday, January 16, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. There will be no trash and recycling collection on Monday, January 16. Monday’s collection will move to Tuesday, Tuesday’s will move to Wednesday, Wednesday’s will move to Thursday, and the Operators will work on Friday of that week to collect the Thursday routes.
