Trash Pick Up - Community Advisory

If we get more than 6 inches of snow in the morning, it is likely that trash will not be able to be collected as the workers will be working to clear the streets. If the snow is 3 inches or less by morning, it is likely that trash will be collected. We will not know definitively until tomorrow morning. If trash is not picked up on Thursday, plans are to pick it up on Friday. This all depends on snow and road conditions. Thank you for your patience.
