The second weekend in April was the Annual April Alley Clean-Up. Since Bulk Trash pickup for Northwood Hills began Monday, April 11, this was the perfect opportunity to tend to your alley and dispose of any brush or debris you cleared out. Each homeowner is responsible for maintaining the area from their back property line to the center of the alley. That includes trimming bushes so they don’t scrape cars or obstruct the alley. Trees that overhang the alley are required to be trimmed up 15 feet to allow clearance for garbage collection trucks. If trucks have to maneuver to avoid your branches, trash, or other debris, chances are they will cause damage to your alley in the process! Let’s keep it clean.
