Holiday Schedule Means Trash May Pile Up

Putnam County residents may want to make a note of the fact that any trash from their holiday gift-giving will have to stay at the house until Monday.  Officials with the Putnam County solid waste department have announced that the collection centers located around the county will be closed on Friday, Christmas Eve, as well as Saturday, which is Christmas Day.  They will remain closed, as usual, on Sunday, the day after Christmas, and will re-open to begin collecting all of the holiday debris on Monday, December 27th.  Officials say they are encouraging local residents to separate their holiday trash as much as possible, keeping cardboard, plastic, paper and other recyclables out of the everyday non-recyclable material that gets hauled to a landfill.
