If your trash and recycling bins are usually collected on a Thursday or Friday, your garbage collection day will be modified for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

Ellen Smyth, of the city of El Paso’s Environmental Services Department, said: “For more than 20 years, our drivers have worked during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. This year, to give our drivers the chance to enjoy the holiday weekend with their families and friends, we are modifying our Thanksgiving collection schedule.”
