For the third Monday in the last four weeks, a holiday will have an impact on garbage pickups as well as other city services in Evanston.

Due to the holiday honoring the late Martin Luther King, Jr., city services, including garbage pickups, will be restricted.

No refuse or recycling collections will occur on Monday, and the usual Monday through Thursday collections will occur one day later in the week than usual. Friday condo recycling collections, however, will still occur on Friday, Jan. 19.

The Morton Civic Center, Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center, Noyes Cultural Arts Center, Levy Senior Center, Gibbs-Morrison Cultural Center, Chandler-Newberger Center, and Evanston Ecology Center will be closed on Monday.

Robert Crown Community Center, however, will be open from 5:30 a.m. to midnight on the holiday, with office hours from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

All Evanston Public Library locations will be open. Also, the city’s 311 Service Center will be open for normal hours, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Most stores downtown will be open as usual and parking will be free at downtown parking garages and at parking meters throughout the city.
