Effective March 25th: New grid for garbage collection

You might have seen this over at Ald. Sawyer's 6th Ward Chicago fb page. The grid system is coming to portions of Wards 6, 9, 15, 16, 17, & 18 according to the map you see in the graphic below. Trash pick-up will not be done according to wards. Of course if you expect trash pick-up on a certain day there probably won't be a change. For example if you normal expect pick-up on a Tuesday there will be no change to that.

  1. GCA will host Chicago Commissioner of Streets
    and Sanitation, Charles L. Williams, as our April Guest
    Speaker on Saturday, April 20th.

    The word in some circles is that the grid system when
    implemented on the Northside had some bumpy spots.

    We all know how bumpy can translate into crazy when
    things hit the Southside.

    Again, Charles L. Williams, Chicago Commissioner of Streets
    and Sanitation will be the Greater Chatham Alliance's April
    Guest Speaker on Saturday, April 20th at the St. James
    Lutheran Church, 8000 S. Michigan from 11 am to 1 pm.

    GCA always encourages residents to come prepared to ask
    the "hard" questions–-not the soft stuff.

    For instance, residents need to know how we can hold
    businesses that allow garbage to collect in front of their
    stores more accountable, get more public trash cans to
    prevent folks from throwing liquor bottles and fast food
    trash on streets and lawns, what to do when we find dead
    animals in our yards and alley, what happens when twigs
    and branches fall down in clusters in the front of our homes,

    Let's be prepare to welcome, talk and be concise–-but
    also act respectful and polite.
