Cumberland starting curbside pickups in early April CUMBERLAND – The Cumberland Public Works Department has announced the start of weekly curbside collection of yard waste beginning Monday, April 5.

Updates on summer and fall col- lection schedules will be released 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 one's property until the start-up week.

Yard waste will be accepted Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Yard waste can't be delivered to this facility on Mondays or other days that are scheduled town holidays.

Collision and comprehensive insurance are two critical car insurance types to understand because they can come to the rescue in various situations. Although similar, they are often sold as a package, although they don't cover the same problems. Both pay to fix damage to the vehicle or replace it entirely, but not for injuries or for damage to anyone else's property. It's essential to shop around as insurance rates vary widely by state. Your cost will depend on your vehicle's value, your driving history, and the deductible amount chosen, but you can save money by raising your deductible. Only do this, however, if you're prepared to spend more of your own money to fix or replace your car. If you're shopping for auto insurance or are reviewing your current policy, you may want to consider comprehensive coverage. Learn what comprehensive insurance helps protect, how it is different from collision coverage and how limits and deductibles apply to the coverage. For more information, please call HUNTER INSURANCE, INC. at 769-9500, or see us at 389 Old River Rd., Lincoln. As always, our agents will have affordable policies written for you and will assist you if you ever need to file a claim. NOTE: According to an Insurance Information Institute analysis, approximately 77 percent of all U.S. drivers buy comprehensive coverage and 72 percent buy collision.
