Important seller information regarding bulk pick up on Monday by Streets and Sans:
Streets and San asks that any sellers that need a bulk pickup on Monday should call 311 Sunday evening. This way the 33rd Ward crew will know how much manpower they will need on Monday. Also, if you have smaller items, please bag them up help speed up pick up. Thank you.
