There is a new route for trash pickup beginning the Week of June 20. Some in the Tuesday pickup area along the NORTH side of Peeksville Road and further north along Highway 42 will switch to Friday, along with a small area around Patriot's Point and Tanger Ridge, along with the west side of I-75, which were on a Wednesday pickup schedule. The reason is because of overall growth of the city and the new contract with Advanced Disposal. Residents who change will be notifired by tags on doors or on the cans themselves prior to the change. Final route development is underway, so there may be a few areas moved by that date. DRAFT MAP
