HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - If your trash pick-up is normally Tuesday, don’t put your can out. There’s no trash collection on Christmas Day.

The city says recyclables and green waste also won’t be collected, and all trash convenience centers are closed.

The bad news: Your trash also won’t be picked up Jan. 1, as refuse workers are also off that day.

The city said Department of Environmental Services refuse workers only take two holidays each year: Christmas and New Year’s Day.

Here’s a look at the Christmas schedule for other city operations:

  • Emergency medical, fire, lifeguard, medical examiner,  and police services will be available.
  • TheBus will operate on a Sunday schedule. For route and schedule information, click here

  • The Honolulu Botanical Gardens and the Honolulu Zoo will be closed.
  • All satellite city halls and driver licensing centers will be closed.
  • On-street parking will be free, except for the meters on Kalakaua Avenue along Queen Kapiolani Regional Park and metered parking lots.
  • Traffic lanes will not be coned for contraflow.
