  1. Your note on trash and recycling is flatly inconsistent with the info in the link you provide -- IT says that Veteran's Day, 11/11, is a county holiday Monday, AND SO PICKUPS SLIDE FORWARD ONE DAY THAT WEEK. I don't think that's what we could call a "normal schedule."

    1. Actually, the info in the link says:
      "If the actual holiday falls on the weekend, but the County observes the holiday on the Friday before or the Monday after the actual holiday, there is no change in the collection schedule."

      Because the holiday is 11/11 and the county observes it on Mon., 11/12, sounds to me like pickups will be on the normal schedule, so there is no contradiction with this page.

    2. Thank you for your comment. I looked at the website and see what you mean. There is an additional sentence further down on the website that states "If the actual holiday falls on the weekend, but the County observes the holiday on the Friday before or the Monday after the actual holiday, there is no change in the collection schedule." I will pass your comment to our Department of Environmental Protection so they are aware.
