Garbage and Recycle Collection

While your alley is closed for construction, waste cart collection will occur from your front street or avenue. Residents are asked to temporarily relocate carts and recycle bags to the front of their property during alley closures for pick-up on collection days. Carts and recycle bags should be placed in a visible location along the curb or back of the sidewalk, at which point collection workers will maneuver carts so they can be emptied. It is recommended that residents identify their home address in the space provided on the carts to ensure your assigned carts are returned to your home after collection. 

RV and Trailer Parking Permits

If you need access to your RV or Trailer and want to park it on the street during the alley closure please contact the Project Manager. They will work with you to ensure you have a permit issued for the duration of the closure. Please wait until you receive the bulletin from the contractor indicating your exact closure dates to request this permit. 

Alley Renewal: What to Expect During Construction

About the Project

Alley Renewal involves alley reconstruction and repaving, improvements to surface drainage where possible, and upgrading of existing alley lighting to LED fixtures. It also includes the opportunity for a local improvement to add alley lighting if property owners are interested. Utility assessments and repairs, along with removals and pruning of trees and shrubs, are also completed. 

Construction is scheduled to begin in 2023.
