Queen Creek municipal offices to close on Thanksgiving Day

The Town of Queen Creek offices will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 26, in honor of Thanksgiving Day. This closure will not affect any public safety or emergency services. Residents who have a water, sewer or streets emergency during the closure should call 480-358-3131.

Trash and recycling services for residents in Zone 3 will be delayed until Friday. Residents will need to have their carts out by 6 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 27, for service. As a reminder, residents may schedule bulk trash services online at QueenCreek.org/Trash.

Normal business hours for the town are from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday; the officers are closed Friday through Sunday.

Thanksgiving is a time to take advantage of the town’s free cooking oil recycling program. The used oil and grease is collected and turned into clean biodiesel fuel. Blue collection barrels are available year-round at both fire stations, which are at 22407 S. Ellsworth Road and 24787 S. Sossaman Road. Visit QueenCreek.org/Recycling to learn more about the program.
