There's a holiday on Wednesday. Perhaps you've heard it's Independence Day.
Not only will most banks and the post office be closed, but New Rochelle's City Hall will be shuttered for the day, along with most of its services.
One thing that will be affected is garbage collection. According to the city's Public Works department, when a holiday falls on a weekday, collection for the rest of the week is changed.
While no garbage collection will happen Wednesday—which is a normal recyclables collection day—on Thursday garbage and commingled glass, plastic and metal will be collected in the north part of the city. The same will happen Friday in the southern part of the city.
All material must be place at the curbside by 6 a.m. during the summer months.Let Patch save you time. Get great local stories just like this delivered right to your inbox or smartphone everyday with our free newsletter. Fast signup here.
