Due to Friday being the Fourth of July, Blue Diamond Disposal has modified its recycling pickup schedule for this week. Instead of picking up recyclables on Friday, they will be picking up on Saturday 7/5. As usual, they will make the rounds early in the morning, so be sure to have your recyclables up by the curb very early in the morning. We hope you all have a festive Fourth of July holiday!
