Holiday Happenings

Holiday Happenings

Every year the city observes several holidays. These holidays are spread throughout the year and will affect some of the services provided to citizens. For instance, the Solid Waste Services Department will not provide residential waste, recycling or brush/bulky waste collection on city-designated holidays. These services will resume on your next regularly scheduled day. 


The City of Irving recognizes New Years Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and the day after, and Christmas as city holidays. There will be no trash, recycling or brush/bulky waste collection and the Hunter Ferrell landfill is closed on the following days in 2021:

  • New Year's Day - Friday, Jan. 1
  • Memorial Day - Monday, May 31
  • Independence Day - Monday, July 5
  • Labor Day - Monday, Sept. 6
  • Thanksgiving Holiday - Thursday and Friday, Nov. 25-26
  • Christmas - Friday, Dec. 24

For questions or concerns about how city-observed holidays affect your residential waste collection, contact Solid Waste Services at (972) 721-8059.
