Most Arlington County offices and facilities are closed for Columbus Day today (Oct. 8).

Among the closures are county government offices, courts, DMV Select offices, the Department of Human Services, libraries, and public schools.

Community centers are closed, with the exception of Barcroft, which is open from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The Washington-Lee High School pool is also open from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The Wakefield and Yorktown pools are open from noon to 6:00 p.m.

ART buses are operating on a holiday schedule. Trash pickup is proceeding on a normal schedule.

ARLnow.com will be monitoring any possible breaking news stories but will be on a limited publishing schedule.

    I must admit that this is the first place I’ve lived where trash pickup happened regardless of holidays. Is there any holiday where trash pickup does not happen?

      Christmas and New Year’s. They usually announce a modified schedule for those weeks. Your trash will still be picked up, but pickup days are moved around to accommodate the holidays.

        Before ArlCo contracted out residential trash pick-up, we were much like other jurisdictions without pick-up on most holidays.

          I disagree — I’ve had holiday trash pickup since well before they contracted out. I think it’s easier to handle the trash pickup and incineration schedule without changing it all the time.
