This Tuesday, July 4th, is a government holiday to celebrate the 241st birthday of our great nation.
If you receive City garbage pick-up on Monday, your garbage will be collected on Monday, July 3rd. If you receive City garbage pick-up on Tuesday, you may not get your garbage picked up until Wednesday, July 5th. Crews will work longer days, so those with Tuesday pick-up may get service late Monday. Please plan accordingly by having your garbage ready for pick-up Monday.
I am rewarding my staff for their hard work and long hours with the day off on Monday, July 3rd. Accordingly, my 49th Ward Service Office will be closed on both Monday and Tuesday. The office will reopen at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, July 5th.
If you have a City services emergency, call 311. Otherwise you may call and leave a voice mail at 773-338-5796. Or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will reply on Wednesday, July 5.
Have a safe and Happy 4th of July holiday, and please leave the pyrotechnics to the professionals!
