Reclaim Your ‘Dibs’ Items or They’ll be Thrown Out, City Says
You’d better move that lawn chair guarding your parking spot if you want to keep it.
Starting Monday, the Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation will begin removing objects used by residents to hold their parking spaces during snowy months, a practice known as claiming “dibs.”
Crews will discard any unclaimed items along their daily garbage collection routes, with special attention given to address all 311 complaints, according to a city press release.
Residents can call 311 or go online to report concerns about debris in their area.
And, just a reminder: Street sweeping begins April 1.
