There will be a lot of fun activities going on in Guilford County all week long during the Fourth of July holidays, however, if you live in the City of Greensboro and rely on its services, then you need to take note of what will be open and what will not, as well as any changes in city service schedules.

Fortunately, on Friday, June 28, the City provided a rundown of what Greensboro residents need to know about the coming week.

First and foremost, City of Greensboro offices are closed on Thursday, July 4, in observance of Independence Day.

Also, there will be no trash or recycling collection on July 4. Instead, Thursday’s collections will take place on Wednesday, July 3. (Note that that’s a day earlier than usual, not later). On Friday, collections remain the same.

Also closed on the day of July 4 will be the White Street Landfill and Transfer Station.

On July 4, the Greensboro Transit Agency (GTA) and Access GSO will operate on a Saturday schedule hourly from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Several GTA routes, including the Hopper Trolley, may be detoured in spots due to downtown street closures.

The Greensboro Public Libraries, Greensboro History Museum, and the Greensboro Cultural Center will all be closed on July 4.

On the other hand, all Greensboro City parks, trails and greenways will remain open.

Gillespie Golf Course will operate on its normal schedule on Thursday. You can call 336-373-5850 to schedule a tee time if you want to hit the links over the holidays.

City pools and spraygrounds will be open as normal; however, the following facilities and agencies will be closed for the holiday: Parks and Recreation Department administrative offices, recreation centers, Greensboro Sportsplex, Smith Active Adult Center, Trotter Active Adult Center, Xperience @ Caldcleugh, Simkins Indoor Sports Pavilion at Barber Park, and Greensboro Youth Council.

Emergency services are available for water and sewer needs 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and that won’t change over the July 4th holiday. Water customers can call 336-373-2489 (CITY) to report water or sewer problems. After placing the call, you need to follow the prompts to connect to the Water Resources dispatcher.
