City to Help Residents with Holiday Trash and Recycling


Special Pick-up Service starts January 2, 2018

City of Akron Press Release
From the desk of Ellen Lander Nischt, Press Secretary
Published: 12-19-2017

Akron, Ohio, December 19, 2017 – Effective Tuesday, January 2, 2018 and continuing through Saturday, January 6, the City of Akron Sanitation/Curb Service Division will be permitting residents to place extra trash or recycling, in the form of wrapping paper and boxes alongside their trash or recycling carts, on their normal collection day. 

"Each year we provide this extra service to our residents after the holidays, most of whom have additional items to discard or recycle,” Mayor Dan Horrigan said. "This particular pickup is intended for extra holiday items, like wrappings and boxes, which we realize won't all fit in one or maybe even two trash carts."

Following the holidays, the City will also collect residents' holiday trees left alongside trash carts on their normal collection day. As always, customers who wish to put out a larger volume of other household trash are asked to contact the Mayor’s Action Center at 3-1-1, (330) 375-2311 or to pre-schedule one of the three special bulk pickups allotted to each household, each year.

Please also note that there will be no curb service on Monday, December 25 (in observance of Christmas Day) or Monday, January 1 (in observance of New Year’s Day).  Curb service will resume Tuesday through Saturday, on a one-day delay.
