The city of Havelock has announced changes to the trash and recycling pickup days for the holidays.

Trash and recycling will not be picked up on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day. Instead, trash and recycling for the remainder of those weeks will be one day behind, meaning normal Wednesday pickup will be Thursday, Thursday pickup will be Friday and Friday pickup will be Saturday.

Trash and recycling pickup will return to a normal schedule on Jan. 6.

As for yard debris, furniture, appliances and other large bulk items, pickup will not take place Monday through Wednesday of next week.

Pickup will resume on Thursday with the normal Monday route and progress as quickly as possible.

Those city residents with live Christmas trees must remove all decorations and lights before placing them alongside the curb for pickup.
