Year end 2018 trash and recycling pickup is Friday

Hello Vernon — Triple T tells us that because of the holidays, both this week AND next week, trash and recycling pickup in Vernon will be Friday rather than Thursday. And by the way, if you’re feeling generous and haven’t done so already, it would be nice to tape to your receptacle an envelope for the crews containing a year-end gift (meaning, something green and easily folded) — it’s hard work in all kinds of weather, they’ll appreciate it.
