 Republic Services of Edwardsville recognizes six holidays:

Should your pick-up day fall on or after the holiday your trash, recycling, and yard waste will be collected one day late. For example, if your service is on Tuesday and Tuesday is a holiday, your trash and recycling pick-up would then be on Wednesday. The Wednesday pick-ups would then be on Thursday and so on. If the holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, there will be no change in the collection schedule. All residential pick-up services shall be made between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.
