    Trash and Recycling Day Moved This Week due to Eagles Parade

    Soooo it seems that the entire city WILL shut down on Thursday due to Eagles fever.

    More importantly: the Streets Department is declaring a holiday schedule for Thursday. The residential trash and recycling will be delayed and is suspended on Thursday, Feb 8th.

    What this means: If you put out your trash tonight (Wednesday), wait until Thursday night. If your trash day is later, then wait a day to put your trash out. Easy, peasy.

    The Streets Department will still be working Thursday along the parade route: 80 blocker trucks dedicated to crowd control, ten compactors for trash and recycling collections, 12 mechanical brooms and 25 backpack blowers.

    Go birds!
