Thanksgiving Week in Mount Airy will be accompanied by a bounty of sanitation-related scheduling changes.
This includes no residential garbage collections on Thursday, the day of the holiday, when commercial garbage pickups also will be non-existent. No commercial service will occur on Friday, either.
The residential routes normally run on Thursdays will be serviced on Wednesday instead, on a curbside-only basis. Wednesday’s routes will operate under the normal schedule, curbside-only.
Friday’s residential route, however, is to be collected on Monday of next week.
Another change will involve Thursday’s and Friday’s industrial roll-off routes being run on Wednesday instead.
And no yard-waste collection is on tap for Monday of next week.
City offices are scheduled to be closed both Thursday and Friday in observance of Thanksgiving.
