All Sanitary Service Company (SSC) routes will be on regular schedule for Christmas, Monday, December 25, 2017 and New Years, Monday, January 1, 2018. Customers whose regular collection day is Monday should set out containers the night before for pick-up. Collection times on holidays can be earlier than normal due to lighter traffic on area roads. To help prevent litter, customers are reminded to bag all trash before placing in containers and to place each recycling bin on the ground during windy weather.

SSC offices and the Bellingham Drop Box Facility and Recycling Center (F St & Roeder Ave) will be closed Monday, December 25, Tuesday, December 26 and Monday, January 1. They will reopen the following business day with regular hours 8AM-5PM. Closed 12-1PM for lunch.
