-- Recycling and bulky item pickup also due to change --
Effective Jan. 1, 2018, Salisbury will be implementing new routes for garbage, recycling and yard debris collection, possibly resulting in a new garbage, recycling and yard debris pick-up day of the week for residents. Route changes will allow for more efficient collection points, while keeping the trucks in the same general area each day, thereby reducing the number of miles driven per week.
