HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Department of Environmental Services reminds Oahu residents that refuse collection workers will not be collecting trash, recyclables and green waste Dec. 25, 2014, and Jan. 1, 2015 – Christmas Day and New Year's Day. These are the only two holidays observed by refuse workers.

• Communities using the 3-cart collection system, with once-a-week refuse and once-a-week recycling pickup, are asked to leave their gray carts curbside until serviced, usually within two business days.

• Recycling days that fall on these holidays will NOT be made up. Please hold mixed recyclables (blue cart) and green waste (green cart) until the next scheduled pickup date.

• Residents on twice-a-week manual refuse collection, please hold items for the next scheduled pickup date.

• Bulky collection will continue on the days following the holidays. Since bulky pickup is conducted over a 3-4 day period in each sector, the collection crews will make up the holiday on the other days.

Furthermore, all City Convenience Centers, Transfer Stations, H-POWER and Waimanalo Gulch Sanitary Landfill will be closed Christmas Day and New Year's Day. However, all these facilities will re-open December 26 and January 2.
