Wayne County’s Solid Waste Department traditionally celebrates three holidays and DOES NOT collect garbage on these days:
1) Independence Day (July 4)
2) Thanksgiving Day (the fourth Thursday in November)
3) Christmas Day (December 25)
Should any of these three holidays fall when your rural community’s trash collection is normally conducted by the Wayne County Solid Waste Department, your garbage will be collected on the SAME DAY OF THE FOLLOWING WEEK. For example, if Independence Day falls on Monday, July 4 and your garbage is typically collected on Mondays, then your bagged streetside solid waste won’t be picked up until Monday, July 11.
Rural garbage collection takes place in Wayne County on every other holiday throughout the year.
