Monday was Columbus Day….

Monday was Columbus Day… which was a holiday!

I forget Columbus Day is a trash pick-up holiday in Columbus Ohio.   I was raring to go for a Friday trash pick-up as I somehow missed trash pick-up  a week ago.  The pressure was on to get the big green trash can out Thursday night or Friday morning to not to miss it again.  Lotsa trash…

On Discover Columbus Ohio (my Columbus Ohio real estate site, current content headlines are in the sidebar here) I saw someone reading an old trash pick-up post… and wondered why.  Why would someone be reading about trash pick up? because in part that post talks about Columbus Day being a trash pick-up holiday.

The post from 2008  says:

“Please place your trash out for collection by 6:00 A.M.”

Remember this is old stuff.  This was 2008…  call 645- NAVY or 645- RUBY, or 645- GOLD or 645-GRAY or 645- I forget the 5th color… 645- PINK?  to determine the 2011 rotation.) The old 2008 Columbus trash pick-up post goes on to say:

“The trash day rotates when there is a holiday. For example trash day is Wednesday now in the NAVY area and will be until Columbus Day… after Columbus Day the trash collection day for the NAVY area moves back to Thursday… after Thanksgiving trash day in the NAVY area will be on Friday… and after Christmas trash collection day will move to Monday…. for the NAVY area.

Holidays that affect trash collection include New Years Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day… Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The 2008 Calendar is online. Early in 2009 there will be a new calendar…online.

You can’t help but notice a “Refuse Division” with a mission statement, Columbus Refuse Division Mission Statement I first wrote about Columbus Ohio trash long ago on my first blog back in 2006….

Columbus has color coded trash

It’s trash day in NAVY… I can hear them out there… the roar of the truck… the squeak of the arm…”

I called 645-NAVY being in the NAVY area and heard my trash day is Monday.  The pressure is off for now, but Sunday night, Monday morning?  Wow.  Looking at the holidays, unless something has changed the NAVY area will be Monday trash pick-up until Thanksgiving.
