Trash and Recycling updates for 2014- The new schedule is a bit confusing, looking at 2014 only-the color code is changed to yellow for the West side of Hwy 12, green for the East. Waste Management is changing our schedule from Fridays to Tuesdays for trash and recycling. On Saturday, January 4th trash and recycling will be picked up for everyone, so no one will go three weeks to get their recycling picked up. Starting on Tuesday, January 7th the new schedule will begin.
