The City of Tallahassee’s administrative offices will be closed for the Veterans Day holiday on Friday, Nov. 11. Following are schedule changes for the week of Nov. 7 for solid waste customers living inside the Tallahassee city limits, StarMetro and the Tallahassee-Leon Community Animal Service Center.

Solid Waste Schedule Changes

GARBAGE / RECYCLING / YARD WASTE (blue week) / BULKY ITEMS (blue week) – during the holiday week, all customers normally served on Friday will receive service one day later than their regularly scheduled service (no changes for customers served Monday-Thursday):

Garbage and recycling containers should both be rolled to the curb for pickup by 6:30 a.m., with both containers returned to the home no later than the day after the collection day.

    The taxpayers can pay for the freeloaders at city hall to have the day off and sleep at home and plan their next trips to some part of the world and bone up on what is next in the way of new compensation. Parasites!
