Indianapolis trash, recycling pickup on slide schedule due to holiday

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Labor Day holiday will change the schedule for trash and recycling pickup in Indianapolis.

Monday is a city holiday and a solid waste holiday, meaning that curbside recycling, residential trash, and heavy trash service will operate on a slide schedule, according to the Indianapolis Department of Public Works.

All three services will slide forward one day after the holiday.

The slide schedule is as follows:

  • Residents with normal pickup on Monday will have service Tuesday
  • Residents with normal pickup on Tuesday will have service Wednesday
  • Residents with normal pickup on Wednesday will have service Thursday
  • Residents with normal pickup on Thursday will have service Friday
  • Residents with normal pickup on Friday will have service Saturday

All solid waste services will return to normal on Monday, Sept. 12.
