12:55 PM: Scoop! Garbage bills may now arrive on a different date

In our never-ending quest to keep you abreast of the news stories that shake your world to its very foundations, Alameda Daily Noose has once again scooped all of the other major news media by reprinting the following announcement from Alameda County Industries, the fine folks who collect our garbage and recycling:

Starting in July, ACI will be sending bills out in three separate batches. As a result, some customers will receive their bill three to six weeks later than they are currently accustomed. Customers on auto-pay should be sure to note the actual date of withdrawal printed on their bill. All bills will still be for three months of service. This change will allow ACI to provide improved customer service.
While all of the other major news media focus on ridiculous distractions like the MacArthur Maze explosion, fire, and freeway closure, we here at Alameda Daily Noose pride ourselves on staying focused on the issues that really matter to Alamedans who never — and we mean never — leave the island. Wherever there's a press release to print, a random newsletter item to quote, or even a phony "pre-enactment" of an event of minor significance to film, Alameda Daily Noose is there for you!
