Garbage Pick-Up Delayed

I hope you are enjoying the New Year! I wanted to pass along some info I just received from the City regarding delays in garbage pick-up, and ask that you please pass it on to your neighbors:

There will be a delay in garbage and recycling collection service – both today and tomorrow. The delay is due to the combination of both the adverse weather (icy rain mixture) and the holiday garbage load. Because of no service on the New Years Day holiday, the volume of garbage is much heavier today.

The City is asking that residents keep their garbage carts and bags out for collection even if we are a day late in retrieving it. Monday’s collection service may require much of Tuesday’s collection time. And thus Tuesday’s collection service may run into Wednesday. However, barring a further deterioration in the weather, we should be caught up by Wednesday afternoon.
