City Offices Closed to Commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Posted: 01/10/2020
City of Knoxville offices will be closed Monday, Jan. 20, 2020 to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day. 

Waste Connections will run its normal residential garbage and recycling routes that day. (Thanksgiving and Christmas are the only days of the year when residential curbside trash and recycling are not picked up as scheduled.) Downtown trash and recyclables also will be collected on a regular schedule on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

The City's five recycling drop-off centers will be open, but the Goodwill attendant will not be available to handle donations of household goods. The City's Solid Waste Management Facility, 1033 Elm St., will be closed between Saturday, Jan. 18 and Monday, Jan. 20.

On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Knoxville Area Transit buses and trolleys will run on KAT’s Saturday schedule. The Knoxville Station Customer Service Counter will be open 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. that day.
