Curbside collection did not occur for our neighborhood or other streets in our area last week, Nov 29-Dec 3. This is the second missed collection this season, so there has been only 1 week of collection this season in our neighborhood. Republic Services was contacted directly the morning of Dec 3 to notify that a collection had not yet occurred this week in our neighborhood. I hope that the town will secure a collection to pick up all the missed yard waste that has been on the streets for over a week.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
