Labor Day closings and garbage reminders
City and county officials are reminding the public that some solid-waste collection schedules will change next week because of the Sept. 7 Labor Day holiday.
All governmental offices, schools and some businesses will close in recognition of the holiday.
In New Albany, the route normally collected on Monday will be picked up Tuesday instead and the usual Tuesday route will be collected Wednesday. This has been the usual holiday routine for the city for some time.
In Union County outside the city, garbage will be picked up as usual Monday and the rest of the week. The county policy is to pick up solid waste as long as the Three Rivers Regional Landfill in Pontotoc County is open and that facility only closes for four holidays: July 4, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.
