Garbage is not collected on holidays now, so how does this program change collection? Also, is there a way to get updates so our garbage isn’t sitting at the end of the driveway?

The current practice is that garbage isn't collected on holidays, but crews work ahead or behind to catch up during the days around the holiday. This pilot program consolidates your collection into your next scheduled pickup date. You can keep your garbage put away until that collection date.
