Virgin Valley Disposal has announced several changes in trash pick-up service beginning in the new year.

Residents living in the Sun City Mesquite Anthem area will have their trash picked up on Tuesdays starting Jan. 5.

Residents in other areas whose normal trash service is on Thursdays will continue on that day. However, route changes may alter the pick up time. Trash containers must be placed curbside by 6 a.m. on Thursday mornings or the night before to ensure they will be picked up. Trash containers must be placed a minimum of three feet away from any objects.
