What happened to the trash/recycle schedule this week?

The adjusted schedule was not met this week. As I walked along Union St, the even side from the tracks to 140 still had not been picked up. The odd side from 140 to the Town Common had not been picked up.

On my own street, the recycling was picked up on the adjusted day, the trash one day later and the tree is still there. I can assume there are other neighborhoods with similar results.

The question becomes how and why this occurred. The opportunity is also there to use this as an example where communications could be improved. The town alerts which were used to tell us about the change in schedule could also have been used to tell us why the schedule is not met.

What street do you live on and what is your status?
