Trash Collection Schedule
Trash is now being picked up on Mondays Only. We would respectfully request that when you place your container out for service to place it on the opposite side of the driveway than your mailbox. The mail delivery people have requested this be done in order for them to complete their job. A reminder that no large items including empty boxes will be picked up. Only Updike toters are supposed to be used and no yard waste or limbs will be picked up! Please move your container from the normal storage place in order for the driver to realize it requires service and then place or have it placed back away from the roadways.
