Thursday and Friday collections will be postponed by one day because of the holiday.

This probably goes without saying, but the city of Joliet's garbage collection schedule will be postponed by one day due to next week's Thanksgiving holiday. Here's a news release from the city with the details on that and city hall closures.

Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the City of Joliet and Waste Management announce that collection pick-up regularly scheduled for Thursday, November 27, 2014, will be picked up Friday, November 28, 2014, and customers with Friday regularly scheduled collection service will be picked up Saturday, November 29, 2014.

In observance of the Thanksgiving holiday, City Hall will be closed Thursday and Friday, November 27 and 28, 2014, and the parking decks will be free of charge and there will be no enforcement of the parking meters.

There will be some restricted parking areas on downtown streets to accommodate the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony and Holiday Parade that start at 5:00 PM in downtown Joliet on Friday, November 28, 2014.
