There are several reasons that your garbage may not have been picked up as expected.
A very common reason that prevents trash from being picked up is that the bags or cans exceed the weight limit of 50 lbs. While the trash cans cannot exceed 40 GALLONS, the weight of those cans cannot exceed 50 lbs.
If your sanitation account is delinquent your trash service may be stopped until the account is brought current.
City recognized (federal) holidays that fall on normal trash pickup days will typically be rescheduled to the Wednesday of that week with curb side pickup.
