  1. I need a MONTHLY trash pickup calendar; it was the only data I needed, and it has disappeared.

    Now all I find is blah, blah, blah from YOUR point of view.
    I am a USER; give me something I can use.
    I can use a primary location for a MONTHLY calendar of pickups if I can print it.
    Everything else in all the pages you have, I have NO USE.
