From Everyone at Decatur County Solid Waste!!

If your recycling pick up falls on or before your regular recycling pick up day, your recycling will be picked up one day later than normal.
For example: Monday is a Holiday. Monday will be picked up Tuesday, Tuesday will be Wednesday, Wednesday will be Thursday,
Thursday will be Friday, and Friday will be on Saturday.

This is ONLY for recycling, the trash schedule does NOT change to this.

This is effective IMMEDIATELY.
