Decatur behind a day on garbage pickup

Jan. 5—The city of Decatur's Sanitation Department is a day behind on garbage pickup because of the weather and the holiday, city spokeswoman Emily Stewart said.

Stewart said the city was closed Friday for the New Year's Day holiday, so garbage collection for that day was initially moved to Monday.

However, the Morgan County Landfill was closed Monday because of the overnight ice and snow. This put garbage pickup behind a day, Stewart said.

Stewart said Sanitation plans to catch up with its collections on Saturday, which is normally an off day for the crews.
