Residents will be able to put out double normal allocation in two weeks

If today’s your garbage day, you’ll have to hold onto your trash for a couple of weeks.

The city has cancelled garbage pickup because of the snow. City workers who would otherwise be tasked with garbage collection have been redeployed to snow removal.

Garbage pickup is also not taking place on the city’s east side, where a private contractor is tasked with collecting trash.
