The affected area is all of the South Side and part of the East Side.

The next trash collection for this area will be Friday night, February 5.  Ten bags of trash and one bulk item will be allowed.

For residents who normally recycle on a Tuesday night, recycling collection will resume on Tuesday night, February 9.
