City administration offices and certain other city facilities will be closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, as well as New Year’s Day.
Some city services will have adjusted schedules for some of those holidays or the weeks in which they occur.

The Sanitation Department’s trash pickup for Christmas week and New Year’s week will be adjusted for a portion of the city. Areas south of Alameda Street plus areas east of Garden Avenue between Alameda and Second Street (normally picked up on Monday and Thursday) will remain on the normal pickup schedule during these holiday weeks.
