Holiday Collection Schedule

The City of East Lansing attempts to collect refuse and recycling as close to regular collection days as possible when it comes to holiday observances. In most cases, DPW crews double up on the day following a holiday. In the case when a holiday occurs on a Friday, collection typically occurs on the following Monday.*When DPW is closed on a Monday in observance of a holiday, there will be no yard waste or bulk item pickup until the following Monday.
