Winter Garbage Cart Placement Reminder

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, the motoring public and can cause delays in snow removal operations and garbage/recycling collections.

By keeping the carts out of the street, you will do your part to help increase safety and reduce snow removal costs.  Also remember to keep containers separated in your driveway apron by at least five (5) feet. If possible, wait until after the snow plows have cleared the roadway before placing your containers in the apron.
