Holiday & Event Schedule

PSSI observes the following holidays:

  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas
  • New Year’s Day

Customers may experience a delay in service when one of the holidays listed above falls on a weekday. During the Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s Day holiday week, service preceding the holiday is unaffected. Customers whose regular service day falls on the holiday or after, however, will receive service a day late. For example, during Thanksgiving week, only customers with Thursday and Friday service are affected. Thursday customers will have their containers serviced on Friday. Friday customers will have their containers serviced on Saturday. Please click here for a Holiday Collection Schedule Chart.

No-Charge Holiday Tree Collection for Staff/Faculty Housing

On regular service days from the first working day after December 25 through January 31, PSSI will collect tress from the curb.

  • Collection will be done using a special truck that may service your block much earlier or much later than our regular trucks.
  • Please remove all lights, decorations, tinsel, and the tree stand before placing your tree out next to your carts.
  • Trees over 6-feet tall should be cut in half.
  •  Please do not place the tree in any type of plastic wrap or bag.
  • Small trees may be placed inside your organics cart if you prefer; just be sure to cut it into small pieces that won’t get stuck in the cart, and make sure the lid will fully close.
  • Flocked trees will be collected but cannot be composted.
  • Artificial trees cannot be collected through this program. Please contact us to arrange for a special collection.

PSSI provides collection services for the “Big 5” events, among others, on campus:

  • Commencement
  • New student orientation
  • Admissions weekend
  • Alumni reunion
