Holiday Collection Schedule

In the case of a holiday, the City of East Lansing attempts to collect refuse and recycling as close to regular collection day as possible. In most cases, DPW crews double up on the day following a holiday. In the case when a holiday occurs on a Friday, collection occurs on the following Monday.
