Residential customers who are serviced twice a week will be serviced on their next regularly scheduled collection day. Commercial customers will experience a one-day delay in service, weather and safe road conditions permitting.

The Town of Goodman, Carrollton, West County and Madison County will not be affected.

BEFORE THE STORM:
