City officials are correcting a page on the Columbus Consolidated Government's Web site that said residential garbage pickup will remain on its regular schedule through Thursday.
There will be no garbage pickup Thursday or Friday, as both are holidays for city workers.
So if your regular pickup days are Monday and Thursday, you may have a towering pile of Christmas trash by the time the trucks come back around on Dec. 28.
If your pickup days are Tuesday and Friday, you've got one more chance to get all the garbage you can out of the house this week before the city government's extended holiday weekend. So take out the trash while you can this Tuesday, if you expect to toss a lot empty boxes and torn wrapping paper into the can this Christmas, because you'll have to store your holiday garbage until Dec. 29.
