Town Says Trash Collection May Be Cut Short By Storm

Since some streets may likely be missed this week as JRM tries to stay ahead of the storm, residents will be allowed to place an unlimited amount of trash at the curb for pickup next week.

Trash collection may be affected by the two-day storm.

There won't be any limits on the amount of trash residents can place at the curb for pickup next week.

That's because the Department of Public Works expects some amount of residents' trash won't get picked up this week due to the storm.

DPW Operations Director Robert Lee said Thursday afternoon the town was coordinating with trash and recycling contractor JRM to continue with normal curbside collections Thursday as much as weather conditions allow and resume pickups on Friday at 10 a.m.

Collection this week is also delayed one day due to the holiday, so Thursday's pickups are on Wednesday's schedule and so on. He said JRM did hope to complete all scheduled collections by the end of the day and then start on Thursday's schedule Friday morning.

Lee said JRM does expect to be caught up by the end of the day on Friday and would have crews out until dark. Any streets they don't get to, however, will be added onto Saturday's route (which is the normal Friday schedule).

Residents should have their barrels at the curb by 10 a.m. on Friday and collection will start at the normal time of 7 a.m. on Saturday.

"Because some residents may still be missed, despite our best efforts, there will be no limit on trash put out for curbside pickup next week," Lee said.
