Chatham County Collection Centers to be Closed Memorial Day

Post Date:05/06/2019 9:00 AM

The Chatham County Solid Waste & Recycling division has decided to add Memorial Day and Labor Day to the Collection Center holiday schedule.

Starting this year, all twelve Collection Centers will be closed for Memorial Day, which is Monday, May 27 this year.

“Most of the businesses that our drivers haul the trash and recycling to are closed on Memorial Day and Labor Day,” says Kevin Lindley, Environmental Quality Director. “This causes the drivers to be behind the rest of the week as they work to get all the containers they would normally pull on a Monday. Plus, it causes centers to get full and stay full longer.”

In addition to Memorial Day and Labor Day, the Collection Centers are closed on the following holidays each year: New Year’s Day, Easter Sunday, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and close at 2 pm on Christmas Eve.
