City Helps With Your Holiday Trash

City of Akron Press Release

The City of Akron Sanitation/Curb Service Division will be permitting residents to place extra trash, in the form of wrapping paper and boxes alongside their trash carts effective Friday, January 2nd and continuing thru Wednesday, January 7th on their collection day.  Please note that curb service will be on a one day delay that week as well.

"Each year we provide this service to help our residents after the holidays, most of whom have more than their usual amount of items to discard,” said Stephanie York, Akron’s Director of Communications.  "This particular pickup is intended for extra holiday wrappings and extra boxes that we realize won't all fit in one or maybe even two trash carts."

Customers who want to put out a larger volume of household trash (as opposed to boxes and wrappings) are asked to call Akron's 311 Call Center either at 3-1-1 from any residential phone in the City, or 330-375-2311 from any other phone, to pre-schedule one of the THREE special pickups allotted each household, per year.

The City will also collect residents' Christmas trees after the holidays. Customers should just place their trees alongside their trash carts on their normal collection day.
