Martin Luther King Holiday

(ECC)  — Schools, banks and the U.S. Postal Service are closed Monday, but trash pick up is – on regular schedule here in Omaha. So, go ahead and leave your garbage and recyclables at the curb despite the Federal Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday on Monday, January 16, 2012.

Other cities that Omaha’s trash collector, Deffenbaugh Industries serve observe the holiday, including St. Joseph, Missouri. It’s up the each individual city to opt to observe or not.
