Which holidays will affect my pickup day?
The city of Valparaiso observes only 6 holidays throughout the year. They are New Years Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. OUR CREWS WORK ALL OTHER FEDERAL HOLIDAYS ( MLK, Jr. Day, Presidents Day, Columbus Day, etc.) and garbage is picked up on schedule. If you’re ever in doubt, put it out!
