Today is Monday, Jan. 7. Here are five things you need to know:
1.) From the town: Christmas trees will be collected by JRM the week of Jan. 7-11 on your regular trash day. Trees in plastic bags will not be collected. Wreaths and garland should go out in regular trash (because they are wrapped in wire).
Also note, NO yard waste will be collected during this week. Weekly collections of yard waste will resume the week of April 8. For additional details on how to dispose of your Christmas tree, please visit arlingtonma.gov/recycle.
2.) A new self-serve “froyo” spot is on tonight’s Board of Selectmen’s agenda. Read more.
3.) Mary T. Murphy, an Arlington educator for 40 years, was laid to rest Saturday. Read more.
4.) Catch up on everything you missed last week with our “Week in Review.”
5.) Today should be mostly sunny with a high near 33, according to the National Weather Service.
