I had to look up my local garbage collection schedule recently and came across the holiday schedule for the City of Sacramento.
Be sure to put out your cans as usual and follow collection day parking guidelines. For loose-in-the-street collection for yard waste, please see Residential Garden Refuse & Street Sweeping.
This includes when parking meters take a holiday (Christmas Eve is on the 23rd and Christmas Day is on the 24th to the City). And read the fine print, “No” means “yes, they are enforced.” Here is a detailed PDF of the free, on-street parking locations (previously mentioned by CoolDMZ on November 17th).
I still wish the County offered the “Loose-in-the-Street” program. Or does it just seem more appealing?
For County folks, you’ll have to use the “e-Map-It” service which continues to be a great resource.
One thought on “2010 Holiday Services Schedule (City & County)”
I still wish the city offered Loose In the Street pickup. Although the city charter requires to the city to provide loose street pickup, the city continues to do everything it can to do end runs around this pesky requirement.
The city provided leaf bins and did everything to prevent customers from opting out. They charge a few buck more a month for loose street pickup, and they keep reducing the pickup frequency.
There are some valid issues with loose street pickup (mainly clogged storm drains). But at community meeting it always seems like recent transplants from LA or SF that are “disgusted” by leaf piles everywhere are the ones bringing down loose street yard waste.
