Please do not park along any village street during snow falls of two inches or more. Violators may be ticketed or towed.

The Maple Park Village Code reads as follows:Snow Man

Any person, firm, partnership, corporation or association found violating the provisions of this section shall be subject to a fine for each violation of this section and may be subject to towing of said vehicle.

THINK OUTSIDE THE PLASTIC BAG

PUT ITEMS DIRECTLY INTO YOUR CONTAINER

Did you know that all your recycling work could be going to waste when you put recyclables in plastic bags in your recycling container? It’s time to “think outside the plastic bag” and empty recyclable materials directly into your recycling container to ensure they have a second life. Tons of materials are sorted at recycling facilities – plastic bags cannot be opened and sorted, they wrap around the equipment, and post safety hazards to workers. If you collect recycles in plastic bags at home in the kitchen, office, or bathrooms, remember to empty those bags directly into your recycling container before taking it to the curb. So, the next time you recycle, think outside the plastic bag and recycle right!Recyle Often Recycle Right Logo
