Hold onto the Thanksgiving leftovers, Issaquah. There will be no garbage, recycling or compost collection from Waste Management and Rabanco on Thursday due to the holiday.

Service will be delayed by a day for the balance of the week, with Thursday customers collected on Friday, and Friday customers collected on Saturday. Normal collection schedules return Monday.

City officials encouraged residents to compost vegetable trimmings, turkey bones, food-related paper items and food scraps. The items can be composted in the green compost and yard waste container.

Remember: Garbage and recycling is collected as usual from both residential and commercial customers on all weekday holidays except Thanksgiving, Christmas (Dec. 25) and New Year’s Day (Jan. 1).

If your collection day falls on a weekday holiday, service will be delayed by a day. If your regular collection day comes after collection has been delayed because of a holiday, your service will also be a day later that week.
