What is the excuse that they can’t pick up on the Friday after Thanksgiving?
Likely scheduling conflicts – best guess
No reason they couldn’t do it on Friday,,, it’s what they always had done in past if they could not pick up on one day then it would be the next day,,, you know people will leave trash out on Friday morning anyway…
So when trash pick up was on a Friday they would come on Saturday instead?
Insane to not have trash pick up for a whole week in the North End. Old contract used to either delay a day or pick up in the holiday.
So the city actually picked up today which is not what the above statement states. I guess the city saw how horrible the streets looked and changed their minds?
Wow, they picked up trash today anyway. Would have liked to known they were going to do that, instead of having to wait another three days.
