“Dear PoPville,

Why didn’t DPW pick up trash at all last week? I get Tuesday but what about the other days? Is this what we can expect all winter?”

DPW issued the following statement:

“The Department of Public Works is collecting trash and recycling, where possible; however, the Tuesday, January 6 snowfall, followed by sub-freezing temperatures Wednesday and Thursday have created conditions in some neighborhoods that are too dangerous for collection crews to work. Therefore, DPW is asking residents whose trash and/or recycling collections are not made this week to hold these items until their next collection day.”
