Sanitation

The City of Douglas operates two (2) garbage trucks to serve all residents that live within city limits.  A pick-up schedule is maintained with the Public Works Department.  For pick up days that fall on a scheduled holiday, garbage will be picked up on the next business day. 

For example, if your garbage pickup day is normally Monday, your garbage would be picked up on Tuesday during the weeks of Memorial and Labor Day.  If you pickup day is normally Thursday, your garbage would be picked up the following Monday during the Thanksgiving holiday because the City of Douglas closes on Thursday (Thanksgiving Day) and Friday.  

If you need more information, Steve can be reached at 307-358-9750.
