Area residents and visitors won’t have to worry about a change in trash collection service, according to Waste Management. Residential garbage service won’t be affected by the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, a Waste Management employee said Wednesday, meaning Dumpsters and trash cans loaded with shredded wrapping paper and gift boxes will be emptied on schedule.
