Labor Day garbage routes, closings given

Posted

A number of garbage schedules and closings have been announced for Monday's Labor Day holiday. 

Walker County routes will not be affected except for dumpsters, which will be a day behind. Garbage schedules for Dora, Sumiton and Cordova will not be affected. Jasper garbage schedules will run a day late the rest of the week. 

Carbon Hill will not run its Monday route, picking back up again on that route during its normal time Thursday.  In Parrish, trash pickup will be delayed by one day, with routes scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday. Oakman, whose contractor will be a day behind during the week, will move garbage service that week from Wednesday to Thursday. 

The Walker County Courthouse will be closed Monday. The Walker County Commission had cancelled its meeting for Monday. The commission will hold a budget work session on Thursday, Sept. 13, at 10 a.m., with the possibility of passing a budget at the next commission meeting the following Monday, Sept. 17. 

City halls and other government offices throughout the county will be closed Monday. The United States Post Office will not have window service Monday, nor will routes be run that day. Financial institutions are also expected to be closed that day.  

A number of chain stores are expected to be open that day as Labor Day sales are expected to continue from the weekend.  Urgent care clinics and pharmacies may be on different schedules for Monday. 

The Daily Mountain Eagle's front office will be closed on Monday, although the Tuesday edition will be published as usual. The newspaper does not have a Monday edition. 

During Labor Day weekend, which runs from 12:01 a.m. Friday, Aug. 31, to midnight Monday, Sept. 3, troopers in the Highway Patrol and Marine Patrol Divisions will step up patrol and enforcement efforts across the state to promote safety and work to prevent crashes, injuries and deaths. 

Enforcement efforts include participation in the national campaign Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. Troopers and their law enforcement partners across the state will conduct sobriety checks and remove impaired individuals from behind the wheels of vehicles and boats (or other water vessels).

For the safety of the traveling public ALDOT will have no temporary lane closures on Alabama interstates from noon Friday, Aug. 31, to midnight Monday, Sept. 3.
