DEARBORN, Michigan – Public Service Days are still in effect in Dearborn and drivers are reminded to keep parked vehicles off residential streets from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Police will issue tickets to vehicles parked on the street 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.
Public Service Day rules apply until 4 p.m., even if trash, recycling and yard waste trucks have already picked up items from the curb in your neighborhood.
The 4 p.m. cut off allows city crews to perform other work throughout the day that benefits the neighborhood. This work, such as street sweeping, tree-trimming and catch basin cleaning, may take place after sanitation trucks have been through a neighborhood.
The city’s DPW crews need to sweep streets before too many leaves fall into the roads, and also before loose leaf collection season begins on Oct. 20. Keeping parked cars off the streets will allow crews curb to curb access.
Street sweeping had been interrupted when DPW crews turned their attention to picking up household debris following the Aug. 11 flood and then removing trees and limbs following strong storms in early September.
Public Service Days end for the season Nov. 29, 2014 and resume again April 6, 2015.
