DELAWARE, Ohio – City offices in Delaware will be closed Monday, January 16, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. As a result, residents should be aware that there will be no refuse collection on that day. However, residential refuse and recycling crews will be operating on a “next day” collection schedule from Tuesday, January 17, through Saturday, January 21, to complete the week’s collections.
The City of Delaware will continue to collect Christmas trees during the period of Tuesday, January 3, through Friday, February 3. To ensure collection, residents are asked to place their trees at the curb on their regular trash collection day. It is important to note that all decorations and lights should be removed from the trees, and the trees should not be placed in plastic bags. Yard waste will also be collected at this time.
