No Trash, Recycling, or Yard Waste Pick up on Labor Day

In observance of Labor Day, PDC will not pick up trash, recycling, or yard waste on Monday, September 2, 2019.  All trash, recycling, and yard waste pickup will be one day late for the entire week ending with normal Friday collection taking place on Saturday. Carts, cans, and all materials may be set out as early as 3:00 p.m. the day before pickup but must be out by 6:00 a.m. on pickup day to avoid missing a collection.  All trash should be bagged, even materials in the trash cart.  This helps reduce litter throughout our community.
