From the Village of Palatine: Garbage collection delayed; crews working to remove snow from roadways.
Over the last 36 hours, snow accumulation has been persistent. Temperatures are expected to be below zero through Wednesday, Jan. 8. Salt and chemicals that are used to clear roadways loose much of their effectiveness at these very low temperatures.
Village crews are focusing on keeping roadways open and passable. Intermittent snow cover on roadways can be expected due to high winds blowing and drifting snow through the coming days. Please use caution when driving and stay alert changing roadway conditions.
Questions can be addressed by the Department of Public Works at (847) 705-5200.
Garbage and recycling collection has been cancelled for January 6, 2014 due to the weather. All garbage and recycling will be collected one day later during the week of January 6, 2014. Please have items at the curb by 6:30 a.m. for collection.
For further information, contact the Environmental Health Division at (847) 359-9090. More information can also be found on Groot's website.
