The West Conshohocken Police Department put up an alert on its Facebook page today with details on a new trash schedule that will be in place for a three month trail period. It will commence on February 1st. Below is the text of the announcement (they really like all caps in West Conshy):
TRASH SCHEDULE CHANGE
STARTING ON FEBRUARY 1, 2016, THE BOROUGH COUNCIL HAS CHOSEN A THREE MONTH TRIAL PERIOD TO CHANGE THE TRASH COLLECTION SCHEDULE TO TWICE A WEEK. AT THAT TIME, TRASH COLLECTION FOR THE ENTIRE BOROUGH WILL BE ON MONDAYS AND FRIDAYS.
THIS MEANS THAT ALL RESIDENTS WILL PUT THEIR TRASH OUT FOR COLLECTION ON SUNDAY NIGHT FOR MONDAY PICK UP AND THURSDAY NIGHT FOR FRIDAY PICK UP.
IF A BOROUGH HOLIDAY FALLS ON A MONDAY, THE TRASH WILL BE COLLECTED ON TUESDAY, IF THE HOLIDAY IS ON FRIDAY, TRASH WILL BE COLLECTED ON THURSDAY.
AFTER 3 MONTHS THE COUNCIL WILL EVALUATE THE COSTS OF TWICE A WEEK COLLECTION AND MAKE A DECISION REGARDING CONTINUING THIS PROGRAM. THE RESIDENTS WILL BE NOTIFIED WHEN A DETERMINATION IS MADE BY COUNCIL WHETHER THE BOROUGH WILL CONTINUE 2X A WEEK OR GO BACK TO THE ORIGINAL TRASH COLLECTION SCHEDULE.
And remember, don’t pack your cans too tight (this isn’t West Conshy):
