Dearborn's and Dearborn Heights' trash pickup schedule will be delayed by one day next week in observance of the Memorial Day holiday.

Dearborn City Hall, the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center (including the Senior Services Center), 19th District Court, and the Dearborn Ice Skating Center will be closed on May 26. Also closed on Monday will be Dearborn Heights City Hall, the Canfield Community and Richard A. Young Recreation Centers, 20th District Court, and the Eton and Berwyn Senior Centers.

All three branches of the Dearborn Public Library will be open for regular hours on Saturday, but will be closed on Sunday. Both Dearborn Heights libraries will be closed on Saturday through Monday, before reopening on Tuesday. The Young Center will also close for the holiday on Sunday as well as Monday.

All of Dearborn's emergency services will remain open throughout the holiday weekend, though the license bureau and other office services will not be open. For any true emergency involving public works, residents are to contact the front desk of the police department, which will then contact the DPW. In Dearborn Heights, the police and fire departments will remain on duty through the holiday weekend, and any public works emergencies should be called into the police at their non-emergency number of (313) 277-6770.

In both cities, trash will be picked up on a Tuesday-Saturday schedule for the week of May 26-30. Homes with Monday trash pickups will be serviced on Tuesday, homes with Tuesday pickups will be serviced on Wednesday, and so forth.

All city buildings will reopen with normal business hours on May 27.
