Will trash collection be delayed because of Martin Luther King Day?

See also

As the nation observes a day in honor of the civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. mail delivery will be delayed by a day and schools and government offices will be closed. However there is no change in the trash pickup schedule because of the holiday.

Allied Waste works a five day workweek regardless of holidays or weather conditions. When a holiday occurs during the week the company must still due all five days of the schedule. When the holiday falls on a Monday, such as Memorial Day, workers receive a three day weekend but only have a one day weekend the following weekend as the Monday through Friday schedule becomes a Tuesday through Saturday schedule.

Allied Waste observes Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. Any other state or national holiday has no impact on their pickup schedule in Rochester Hills, where Allied Waste is the sole provider of residential trash collection.
