speed bump installation

Parking is restricted for the next 3 days on North Park Ave because they are putting speed bumps back after the long street repair project. Signs are up, but if you live here you know no parking and construction signs have become our way of life :-/. Don't get towed.

Recycling CFLs & Batteries?

Just moved to Old Town, finally not living out of boxes! Where can we take batteries and CFL bulbs for recycling?

  • Dennis Hauser Newly Urban

    Thanks to all for helping me channel my inner hippie :)

  • Randi Doeker Environmental activist

    FYI: The Goose Island recycling center is funded by the State of IL, although run by the City of Chicago. That means they take stuff from any IL resident.
