What about trash - is that delayed a day as well?

I'm wondering that myself. Two years ago, I reported that due to an on-going blizzard that trash pickup would be delayed a day after a source in Town Hall said that was the case. The DPW called me within a hour to inform me that trash pickup "almost" never gets cancelled and sure enough, trucks were picking up street side barrels during gale force winds and driving snow. I have sent a message and will give you the answer the moment I find out.

Did we find out if the trash pick up will be delayed?

You can expect the trucks rumbling down your street today if you are on the Monday pick-up schedule.
