No garbage/recycling pickup Monday, City of Aiken offices open

City of Aiken offices will be open Monday, September 11, 2017 as the current track of Hurricane Irma indicates the Aiken area will not face the extreme weather conditions originally forecast. Due to projected high winds, there will be no garbage and recycling pickup Monday and the service will operate on a holiday schedule. That means service will be one day later than normal this week. Please do not leave roll carts at the curb during the high wind event.
