FUNKSTOWN — No, Funkstown residents weren’t seeing things when their trash got picked up twice last week.
Town Councilman Richard L. Gaver sent an email alert last Tuesday to people who subscribe to the town’s website to let them know that trash would be picked up Friday rather than Thursday due to the Labor Day holiday.
The town’s contract with Apple Valley Waste has trash pickup pushed back a day when there is a holiday on a Monday, Town Clerk/Treasurer Brenda Haynes said during Monday night’s town meeting.
Apple Valley Waste workers forgot and picked trash up Thursday morning, Haynes said. They came back the next morning to pick up trash set out on the correct day.
