Some garbage days will change

Trash pickup days will change for about 1,000 Evanston residents starting April 2 because of a restructuring of the garbage collection routes.The routes were reconfigured because the city will begin collecting garbage from condo buildings with six units or less that are currently a part of the city's condominium program. Adding these buildings to the routes will save the city money and aid in containing the cost of trash collection for the expanding condominium population in Evanston.
