Trash Collection Schedule for CNY Holiday

Trash Collection Schedule for CNY Holiday

With Chinese New Year around the corner, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) published the City’s garbage collection schedule during the upcoming holiday. The period between January 5 and February 4 has also been declared as the Year-end Cleanup Period.

DEP urges the public to conduct cleanup of their home surroundings – especially fire lanes and containers with standing water – to help prevent dengue fever. For disposal of large bulk waste such as electrical appliances and old furniture, residents should call the 1999 Citizen Hotline to schedule pickup times with the agency. Improper disposal of bulky items could result in inconvenience for neighbors and may even disrupt local traffic.   

In addition, those who encounter difficulty in dismantling separate components from items such as motorcycle helmets, umbrellas, trophies, or worn-out suitcases (no more than two pieces) are advised to bring the unwanted goods directly to the garbage trucks during the nighttime collection times. These items will be accepted without the need for designated trash bags. To get rid of three or more unwanted suitcases, residents should contact DEP to schedule pickups in advance.

DEP noted that a total of 37 trash collection spots are available across the city’s twelve districts. Those who find the DEP rubbish pickup times incompatible with their schedule can also bring their household trash to the venues for disposal. These facilities are open between 6 AM to 11 PM. Further information on the venues can be found on DEP website (Chinese)
