NEW Holiday Schedule for 2014

Because of the new program beginning in July, 2014, our holiday procedures will be changing.
There will be only 3 holidays which will effect collection (see schedule below). Instead of having a separate makeup day, holiday collection will be moved one day forward. For the rest of the week, collection will move one day forward until pick up for the week has been completed.
See chart below for examples.
 Questions?  Please call us at 757-259-9850.
