In a recent press release The City of Lubbock announced city building closures and perhaps most pertinent to most of us- garbage pickup scheduling. Keep in mind as you fill your dumpster up with boxes, wrapping paper and stale Christmas cookies that garbage trucks will not run Christmas, meaning most garbage collection will run a day behind. It's a great time to be an alley cat!

Here is the complete list of closures and operation hours for City buildings and services. If you still have questions, you can always call 311 for more information.
