Troy DPW: Trash, Recycling Collection to Continue During Memorial Day Holiday

TROY, NY – Sanitation, a division of the City of Troy's Department of Public Works (DPW), announced that trash and recycling services will continue through Memorial Day. The federal holiday will be observed on Monday, May 29th this year.

Troy Sanitation collects and disposes of approximately 14,000 tons of municipal solid waste per year. They collect from the 17,000 residential households and approximately 3,000 business properties in the city per week in a safe, efficient and sanitary manner. Sanitation also collects all recyclable materials such as plastic, glass, metal, paper and yard waste from residential properties in the city. Click here to learn more about Troy Sanitation.

The City of Troy encourages the remembrance of those U.S. military service members who paid the ultimate price to protect the rights, freedoms and privileges enjoyed by all citizens of our nation. Our community is inextricably linked to the many global conflicts our residents and family members have and continue to serve in through the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard.
