There will be a one-day delay in trash, yard waste and curbside recyclables collection for customers served by the Environmental Services Department beginning Thursday, Nov. 25, 2021.

Trash and recyclables collection will return to their normal schedule Monday, Nov. 29, 2021. This schedule is for the city of San Diego only. Residents in other cities should check with their waste hauler for holiday service schedules.

The Environmental Services Department (ESD) Collection Services Division office at Miramar Place will be closed.

Trash is normally collected weekly, Monday-Friday, 6 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Your collection day depends on where you live in the City. Trash must be set out at the curb or alleyway by 6 a.m. for pickup. To help prevent litter in our neighborhoods, please bag or wrap all loose trash material before you place it in your trash container. However, please keep your recyclable materials clean, unbagged and loose in your blue container.
