[From City’s Department of Public Works]

Due to the expected winter weather, the City of College Park will delay refuse and recycling collection today.

Today’s collections (College Park Woods; Crystal Springs; Patricia Court; area north of MD 193, west of Rhode Island Ave, and east of Baltimore Ave) will be picked up on Thursday, and Wednesday’s collections (Cherry Hill; Autoville North; Sunnyside; area north of MD 193 and east of Rhode Island Ave) will be picked up on Friday.

Because of the Presidents’ Day holiday, collections were already shifted forward by one day; Monday’s collections that were scheduled for today have been picked up. With snow projected to begin accumulating between 3:00-5:00 a.m. today morning, Department of Public Works crews will begin snow and ice operations tonight in preparation of the storm, and will continue throughout its duration.

The decision to delay refuse and recycling collection allows our crews to effectively clear the roads of snow and ice, and will help ensure the safety of our staff and residents.

Four to six inches of snow and ice are projected for today; please help our crews and snow plows clear the roads by parking in your driveway, or on the same side of the road as your neighbors. For more information including parking guides and shoveling tips, visit www.collegeparkmd.gov/snow.
