Will the weekly trash collection schedule be affected by this holiday? Trash collection on my street is normally done on Tuesdays, will it be Wednesday because of the holiday?

Hi Steve, I haven't heard of any changes to the trash collection schedule from DPW. If I do, I'll post an update.

Hi. If you check the towns website you will see trash collections held back one day this week.
