Recent weather conditions prompted changes in trash collection schedules in several communities.

In Schererville, trash pickup will be delayed by one day this week.

Merrillville announced trash pickup will occur as follows:

• Garbage collection regularly scheduled for Monday takes place Wednesday.

• Collection regularly scheduled for Tuesday takes place Thursday.

• Collection regularly scheduled for Thursday takes place Friday.

• Collection regularly scheduled for Friday takes place Saturday.

Contact Waste Management, which is Merrillville's waste hauler, at (800) 443-5646.

Hammond's Department of Public Works lost two days of collection this week because of snow removal and alley cleanup.

On Wednesday, the city will pick up garbage and recycling that was normally scheduled for Monday. Pickups regularly scheduled for Tuesday will be collected Thursday; Wednesday's collections will be picked up Friday; and Thursday's and Friday's will be collected Saturday. The department anticipates being back on regular schedule Monday.

In Munster, Monday's route was not completed because Waste Management pulled its crews off the streets due to the weather.

Monday's regular pickups will be done Thursday; Tuesday's will be done Wednesday; Wednesday's will be done Thursday; Thursday's will be done Friday; and Friday's will be done Saturday.
