The Town has asked that we publish how important it is for those people living
in the West end of our town, particularly Maritime Place, to arrange to have their
trash out on pickup days by 7s 15 a-*111, inasmuch as the truck starts at those locations
at that hour. The truck is starting earlier pickups because the landfill is now on
summer hours and closes at 4:30 p,m.
