6 CUMBERLAND MARCH 26-APRIL 1, 2020 | VALLEY BREEZE | CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION 6 one made with safety in mind and in consideration of guidelines set by the CDC. "Stay safe and be kind to one another," read the announcement from the Lambrou family. On the plus side, Pop's Liquors reopened to the public on March 21 while announcing extensive mea- sures to keep customers safe, includ- ing cleaning door handles, pin pads and counters every half-hour. Other businesses were adapt- ing this week and getting creative to attract customers. Adeline's was giving out rolls of toilet paper with takeout food, and Davenport's was among those offering curbside pickup. Restaurant owners had at least one reason to celebrate after Gov. Gina Raimondo issued an executive order allowing beer sales with takeout food orders. Local grocery stores were among those modifying hours for opening and adding special early time slots for seniors to get in to do their shop- ping. The ongoing crisis has presented another opportunity for people to put out unfounded statements about price gouging. Multiple posts on local Facebook pages were deleted after false claims about price gouging on bottles of water at one store. BUSINESSES From Page One Yard waste pickups start April 13 CUMBERLAND – The Cumberland Public Works Department announced that the start of weekly curbside collection of yard waste begins April 13. The spring collection of yard waste will continue until June 19. Yard waste collection during the summer months will then go to a bi- weekly schedule starting June 29. Updates on the summer and fall collection schedules will be adver- tised at a later date. Residents are advised that yard waste bags placed on the street before the start-up date will not be picked up, and those bags should be removed from the street and stored on their property until the start- ing week of yard waste collections. Residents are also advised that the Kent Street Highway garage does not accept yard waste at that facility. In Pawtucket, where MTG also collects trash, seasonal yard waste pickups were moved up to this week to account for the fact that more people are doing earlier yard clean- ups because they're stuck at home. Yard waste is collected on the same day as trash and recycling by the waste provider MTG Disposal, but will be performed with a sepa- rate collection truck. Yard waste is only accepted if placed in brown paper biodegradable lawn bags. Small bundles of branches, no larger than two inches in diameter and limited to three feet in length, may also be placed curbside for pickup. Yard waste that is placed in trash cans or plastic bags will not be col- lected. Yard waste is defined as leaves, grass clippings, hedge or shrub clip- pings, and small branches. No trash, stones, or sand can be mixed in. Further information is available on the town website at www.cum- , or by contacting the Public Works Department at 401- 728-2400, ext. 155.
