Holiday ushers in ‘Summer Hours,’ Delays trash collection

Memorial Day has long been considered the “unofficial” start of summer. That is how the city of Columbus is treating it, as Tuesday marks the start of “Summer Hours” for a number of city departments. Mayor Jim Lienhoop’s office says that the following hours are in effect through July 29:

City Hall – 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Parks and Recreation Office – 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

City Utilities – 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Columbus officials are also reminding you that the Memorial Day holiday will affect your trash pick-up for the remainder of that week. They say that there will be no trash/compost/recycling collection on Monday. Collections will run one day behind, with normal Friday pick-up falling on Saturday. You should have your toters out no later than 7 a.m. on the day of your collection.
