I am asking on behalf of a female ballat tshuvah who resides in a nursing home.

Is she allowed to leave her laundry in her room and allow a private company to pick it up on yom tov? They only pick up on the last Tuesday of the month which falls out on the second day of Sukkot.

ANswer:

The pick up itself may not be a problem as she does not care if they pick it up before or after yom tov. The issue is however that doing laundry on CHol Hamoed is prohibited even by a non Jewish cleaner service. It would only be permissible if the cleaning is meant to be done and returned after yom tov is over.
