Garbage and recycling pickups will be delayed by one day this week, due to the New Year’s holiday being celebrated on Monday, January 2.
The City of Pocatello requests that residents place their autocarts out for collection by 7 a.m. the day after their normal collection day. Residents with a Monday pick-up are asked to place their autocarts out on Tuesday; Tuesday collection will happen on Wednesday, and Wednesday will occur on Thursday, Thursday will be on Friday, and Friday will be collected on Saturday.
From December 27 through January 13, the City will host its Christmas Tree Collection sites. The City will be providing drop boxes for tree disposal. The tree boxes will be removed the morning of January 13.
Christmas tree drop boxes will be provided at City Hall (911 N. 7th Ave.), Rainey Park (900 South Arthur Ave.), and near the entrance to Sister City Park on Pocatello Creek Road. Trees will be chipped and used in landscaping projects. Be sure to remove all strings, wires, and other objects to avoid damaging the City’s wood-chipping equipment.
If you have any questions about the collection schedule, holiday garbage pickups, or the Christmas tree collection program please contact the Sanitation Department at 208-234-6192.
