Garbage and recycling collection will be delayed by one day because of Christmas Day and New Year’s Day holidays.
Garbage and recycling will not be picked up Friday, December 25, 2015 and Friday, January 1, 2016 so residents with a Friday pickup are asked to place their autocarts out for collection Saturday, December 26, 2015 and Saturday, January 2, 2016. The change to the schedule will not affect pickups earlier in the week.
The Bannock County Landfill will also be closed December 25 and January 1. The Sanitation Department’s regular schedule will resume January 4, 2016.
The department has scheduled this year’s special holiday pickup to begin December 26 and run through December 31. The pickup is to accommodate the overflow from the Holidays.
Residents are asked to place their extra bags and boxes in the same location as their regular garbage collection and it will be taken on their regularly scheduled collection day. The extra trash will be taken to the landfill and not recycled.
Officials are also reminding residents not to place Christmas trees out with the extra garbage. The City will again be providing drop boxes for tree disposal starting December 28, 2015. The tree boxes will be removed January 12, 2016. Drop boxes can be found at City Hall-911 N. 7th Ave., Rainey Park-900 South Arthur Ave., and near the entrance to Sister City Park on Pocatello Creek Road.
If you have any questions about the collection schedule, extra pickups, or the Christmas tree collection program, please contact the Sanitation Department at 234-6193.
