ROCKINGHAM — Trash collection for the city will have an altered schedule next week due to the observance of Labor Day.

Garbage on the Monday and Tuesday route will be collected on Tuesday and Thursday.

Trash on the Tuesday and Friday route will be collected Wednesday and Friday.

The department says that, as with any short week, street trash — leaves, limbs and other yard waste — is not guaranteed for pickup.

All city offices will be closed Monday.
