HAMMOND | The Hammond Sanitation and Recycling departments will not be working Thursday in observance of Thanksgiving.
Scheduled pick-up service Thursday and Friday will be picked up a day late this week.
Residents who want leaves picked up must place them in 30-gallon, biodegradable, paper yard waste bags and leave them at the curb the night before their garbage pick-up day. The last pick up for leaves will take place the week of Dec. 9-13.
There will be no leaf vacuuming or free yard waste bag giveaways this year.
