Thanks, Patch. The 2012 township calendar now has no mention of trash/recycling collecting.

Just fyi, there's a note on the town website's new garbage collection info that states that "trash will not be picked up only on major holidays, which includes New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. All other holidays will receive trash and/or recycling collection."
