The upcoming Christmas holiday will bring changes to the garbage collection schedule for property owners in the City of Superior. Due coordinate services for the holiday-related changes, residents will be affected the week of December 20 through December 24.

In observance of the Christmas holiday, the Superior Public Works Department will be closed on Thursday and Friday, December 23 and December 24. This closure will also affect the Municipal Landfill on Moccasin Mike Road

Because of the holiday, there will be no garbage collection on those two days. To accommodate, the schedule will see some of the remaining days of the week shifted around. Here's a breakdown by collection days of the week - direct from the city's website:

"Garbage pickup will begin Monday of the holiday week. Please have your garbage out on Monday by 7:00am or by 7:00am two days in advance of your normal scheduled pickup. Please be aware there may be delays in pickup."

The "two-day early" resulting schedule will allow for no collections to happen on Thursday or Friday.

As far as recycling goes, there will be no changes to homeowners who normally see their recyclables picked up on any of the days of the week. All recycling questions should be directed to Hartel's Disposal by calling 218-729-5446.

The City of Superior usually alters garbage collection schedules to accommodate respective holidays. Recycling schedules often change at the same time - albeit at (sometimes) different revised dates; this is due to the fact that the recycling collection isn't handled by Public Works Department employees but rather by Hartel's Disposal - a contractor.
