Thanksgiving Day Holiday


Thanksgiving Holiday Schedule for Trash, Recycling, Street Cleaning, and the Cambridge Cemetery

Cambridge city offices will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 28 and Friday, Nov. 29 for the Thanksgiving Holiday. There will be no trash, recycling pickup or street cleaning in Cambridge on Thursday only. Service will resume on Friday and pickup routes for Thursday and Friday will be one day behind schedule. The Recycling Drop Center at 147 Hampshire Street will be closed on Thanksgiving, but will be open with regular hours on Saturday, Nov. 30, from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Street Cleaning for the odd side of District K will be posted & swept on Friday, Nov. 29.

The Cambridge Cemetery at 76 Coolidge Avenue will have the gates open from 7 a.m. until dusk on Thanksgiving, though the Cemetery Administrative Office will be closed.

How can we help you? I'd like...
