My pile has been out prior to Thanksgiving and it's still sitting there.

Thanks for the update. I was wondering if we were just missed or whether I misunderstood the pick up plan. I was just about ready to drag the wood to my backyard and eventually cut it up and burn it in the fire bowl.

The truck came to my home today. They had to return to the landfill several times to empty the truck just from my neighborhood alone. There is an incredible amount of debris around the town. I had the opportunity to watch them in action, and it is not as easy a job as most think. The cleanup may not be done by Friday, but the crews are doing a wonderful job and I would like to thank them. I am also grateful that someone is picking up this debris. It would have been an overwhelming task to bring all my debris from the storm to the landfill. Be patient folks.
