Trash pickup to be earlier in day

From Local Sources

JASPER — The Jasper Street Department announced Thursday that trash and recycling will be collected earlier than usual across the city, so that employees are out of the extreme temperatures prior to noon.

A representative with the city reminded all residents that trash and recyclable items need to be placed at the curb no later than 7 a.m. on the day of their pickup.

While temperatures drop excessively low, the street department will send out two collection crews and split the route to limit employees’ outdoor exposure.
