Veterans Day schedule for city; leaf bag, yard waste collection update

City Hall and the Bristol Transfer Station will be closed on Wednesday, Nov. 11in honor of Veterans Day.

There will be no curbside collections on Wednesday.

Monday, Nov. 9 and Tuesday, Nov. 10 collections will not be affected by the holiday schedule. Rubbish, recycling and yard waste collection will be one day later than normal after the Veterans Day Holiday. Friday collections will be done on Saturday, Nov. 14.

City Hall and the Transfer Station will reopen for normal business hours on Thursday, Nov. 11.

Fall leaf bag collection will continue through the month of November. During this time, leaf bags are collected on your normal rubbish collection day depending on volumes. Place bags at the curb as soon as they are filled and leave them curbside until collected. The city has seen a bumper crop of acorns this fall; please keep leaf bags under 40 pounds each to avoid tearing bags and injuries to workers lifting the bags.

Yard Waste (green barrel) service has been extended through the week of Nov. 30. If you subscribe to the service, your last collection this year will be during the week of Nov. 30 through Dec. 4.bristol city seal
