Dallas is going to once-a-week trash and recycling collection in March. And they’re letting us all know with a campaign called OneDAY Dallas. Which is great. I’m glad they’re preparing us. But in the past two weeks or so, my cellphone has rung three times with an automated message telling me about it. And once really was enough.

We’d be interested in hearing from readers who think one trash and recycling collection per week isn’t enough.

Next month, the city is holding community meetings about the change. Here is a list of theOak Cliff dates:

Jan. 5, 6:30 p.m., Methodist Dallas Medical Center’s Hitt Auditorium
Jan. 14, 7 p.m., Park in the Woods Recreation Center
Jan. 23, 10 a.m., Hampton Illinois Branch Library
Jan. 30 10 a.m., Dallas West Branch Library
