WHY DID A TRUCK COME THROUGH MY NEIGHBORHOOD AND NOT PICK UP MY ITEMS?  If a truck has been through your neighborhood and has not picked up your items, it could be that the crew is picking up a different type of item than you have set out for pick up. Leave your items at the curb and somebody will be by to pick them up by the end of the week. 

WHEN SHOULD I CALL, IF MY ITEMS HAVE NOT BEEN PICKED UP?  By Thursday or Friday the crews are usually finishing their pick up routes.  If your items have not been picked by then, please call the town offices to ensure your items get picked up.
