Public Works Announces Improved Holiday Service for Recycling

The city has adjusted its approach to rescheduling recycling collections that are disrupted by city-observed holidays.Instead of requiring customers to wait for service until their next scheduled recycling day, collections scheduled to occur on a city-observed holiday will take place on Friday of the same week.

“While our practice of delaying recycling collections for two weeks was workable for most of our customers, it created a hardship for some,” said Street Division Superintendent Ryan Cushenan. “The majority of city-observed holidays occur on Mondays, leaving customers on the Monday recycling routes to deal with an excessive number of missed collection days. We will minimize inconvenience to our customers by providing an alternative collection day during the same week.”

Additional information about the city’s Single Stream Recycling Program, including collection schedules, routes, and additional recycling services are available at CityofMontrose.org/Recycling or call 970-240-1480.

The city’s arrangements for alternative trash collection days during holiday weeks will remain unchanged. Detailed information about alternative collection schedules is available at CityofMontrose.org/Holiday.
