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.
Heavy trash – I couldn’t find the calendar for heavy trash pickup for my neighborhood, museum district, 77006
