Holiday Pickup

The City of Stamford picks up garbage and recycling on all public holidays EXCEPT:

  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas
  • New Year's Day (Jan. 1)

There will be no collection on the above days.

During weeks when your regular pickup is on or after one of the above days, your pickup will take place the following day.


Let's say New Year's Day falls on a Monday. Then the regularly scheduled Monday pickup will occur on Tuesday, Tuesday's pickup will take place on Wednesday, and so on until Friday's garbage and recycling is collected on Saturday.
