Ah, the alleys... full of 20 feet of immovable snow (or at least, that's what it seems like). But what about your full trash and recycle cans? When are they going to be collected? DPW is planning on resuming collection on Thursday, with a shifted schedule until February 1st. Here's their press release:

DPW Announces Altered Trash Schedule

Due to last week’s blizzard, DPW will suspend trash collection through Wednesday, January 27th. DPW will attempt collection on Thursday, January 28 and operate on an altered schedule Thursday through the weekend. Normal trash collection is scheduled to resume on Monday, February 1.
