Changes in Mount Airys garbage-collection schedules have been announced for this week in light of the Christmas holiday.
Todays and Thursdays residential and commercial routes will be collected on schedule, city sanitation officials say. Those collections will be curbside only, because of the recent snowfall.
However, Fridays routes both commercial and residential will be collected one day early this week, on Christmas Eve.
City offices will be closed both Thursday and Friday for the holiday.
New Years Schedule
Another sanitation-schedule change affects the New Years holiday period.
Residential and commercial routes normally picked up on Jan. 1 (Friday) will be run on Dec. 31 instead.
Municipal offices also will be closed on Jan. 1 in observance of New Years Day.
The city recycling center will keep its same schedule throughout both holiday periods.
