Most City of Greensboro offices and facilities will be closed for Veterans Day, Thursday, Nov. 11.

There will be no garbage, recycling, bulk trash, yard waste or appliance collections on Veterans’ Day, and what is tricky for folks who have scheduled pickup that day is that the regular Thursday pickups will be done on Wednesday, Nov. 10.  If your pickup is a day late because of a holiday, it means your bins sit out on the street for an extra day if you forget, but those with Thursday, Nov. 11 pickup who forget are just out of luck for a week.

The White Street Landfill and the Solid Waste Transfer Station are also closed on Thursday, Nov. 11.

All branches of the Greensboro Public Library and the Cultural Arts Center on Davie Street are closed, but the Greensboro History Museum is open with normal operating hours.

The Greensboro Transit Agency (GTA) is operating all its buses on a normal weekday schedule on Veterans’ Day.

The Greensboro Parks and Recreation offices, all recreation centers, Smith and Trotter Active Adult Centers, Adaptive and Inclusive Recreation, City Beautiful, Greensboro Sportsplex, Greensboro Youth Council, Simkins Indoor Sports Pavilion, and Xperience @ Caldcleugh will be closed for Veterans’ Day.

However, Gillespie Golf Course, all city parks, gardens, trails and cemeteries will be open on their normal operating schedule.  Lake Higgins, Lake Brandt and Lake Townsend will also be open on the normal operating schedule.

All City of Greensboro offices will be closed in observance of Veterans’ Day, but emergency service is available for water and sewer needs.  Water customers can call 336-373-2489 (CITY) to report water or sewer emergencies.  After placing the call there will be prompts to connect to the Water Resources Department dispatcher.

Guilford County Schools are also closed for Veterans’ Day.  So for kids, schools are closed but so are all the city recreation centers and libraries.
