The following DPW facilities will remain OPEN:

Snow and ice make many residential streets and alleys impassable, Solid Waste trucks cannot run their routes. In addition, drivers are often called on to help the City’s Department of Transportation to plow and clear the roads.
Residents are reminded of the need to keep trash in bags and secured inside durable trash cans with tight-fitting lids.
Please Clear Storm Drains!
Residents are also reminded of the importance of locating and clearing the storm drains in their streets and alleys. As temperatures rise above freezing and the snow melts during daylight hours, the stormwater system can only drain water away only if the inlets are kept open. Please also make sure hydrants are clear of snow and accessible.
