Back to school: School resumes for EG public school students today, but with early dismissal because of the anticipated snow.
Nor'easter: We are in for some snow. Predictions say 6 to 10 inches. So, pull out your snow shovels, make sure you've got your bread and milk (and batteries!) and get ready!
Christmas Tree curbside collection: The town will collect your tree and recycle it, but not until the weeks of Jan. 6-10 and Jan. 13-17. Just make sure your tree is bare – no ornaments, tinsel, metal or wires – and NOT in a plastic bag. If you’ve used a bag to get your tree out of your house neatly, just make sure to pull it off. Any questions, please call the Department of Public Works at 886-8620/886-8621
Recycle pick up and a New Year’s delay: Chances are, if you’ve never filled your giant blue toter to the brim before, you did this past week! Pull it out to the curb along with your regular trash. Because of the New Year’s Day holiday, trash and recycle pickup will be delayed one day Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. For more information, check out the town’s DPW website here.

Joined the town emergency notification list yet? The Town of East Greenwich is looking for residents to join its emergency notification system. The town can only obtain phone numbers for households with land lines; if you have a cell phone you want the town to use for emergency notifications, you need to register it with the town. You can do that from a link on the town’s home page. You’ll find the link in the upper left corner. In addition, you can sign up to receive a weekly “eNews” email from the town. Get connected!
