Your guide for life in East Greenwich today, Oct. 30.

Town offices will be open: As of Monday night at 10 p.m., town offices will be open and senior services and Parks & Rec programs will go on as scheduled.
No trash pickup: There is no trash pickup Tuesday. Trash for Monday and Tuesday will be picked up on Wednesday. The remainder of the week will have a one-day delay. No yard waste will be picked up this week. Town crews will resume yard waste pickup once emergency cleanup is over.
If you are out of power: Contact National Grid at 800-322-3223 or contact the Police Department at 884-2244 to let them know of outages. National Grid needs to know specifically what neighborhoods are out of power. Stay away from downed power lines and assume they are energized and dangerous.
