Warning To Proposal Writers (and Agency Evaluators) in Vern Edwards' Blog A blog by Vern Edwards Posted Friday at 12:02 AM · Report reply Yep. I too get very upset when the trash truck doesn't arrive on Thursday morning. So do my neighbors. That usually happens when there's a Federal holiday earlier in the week so the trucks get behind a day. They pick up Friday morning instead of Thursday morning. I was considering sending the trash company a cure notice, but then I decided that a poor CPARS rating was sufficient.
