The Village is reminding residents to place their garbage and recycling carts in the driveway apron, or shovel an area behind the curb to place the carts.
Public Works plow operators have noticed a number of carts that were placed in the roadway while snow plowing. Having the carts in the road is a hazard to the plow operator and the motoring public by requiring the plow to weave in and out of traffic to avoid the carts. Carts in the road after a snow fall also require additional time and money for cleanup.
If you are out walking and see the bins in the roadway before or during a snowfall, please consider helping our snow plow operators by moving them to the driveway. By keeping the carts out of the street, you will do your part to help increase safety and reduce snow removal costs.
