Our office works alongside our residents and the Chicago Department of Water Management to identify residential sewers that need sewer inspection and/or cleaning to mitigate flooding. If there is a drain near you that you believe needs an inspection, please do not hesitate to call our ward office at (773) 887-3772. We also invite residents to do their part and utilize some of the helpful tips below to assist with stormwater management.

Spring / Summer Stormwater Management Tips:
- Don’t litter or dump anything in storm drains. Storm drains are for rain only.
- Avoid running a dishwasher or washing machine during storms.
- Use a commercial car wash or wash your car over grass or gravel instead of on a driveway or in the street.
- Use lawn fertilizers sparingly, follow product instructions, and sweep driveways and sidewalks after application.
- Do not dump fats/oils/greases in private drains.
- Install rain gardens, green landscaping, or trees in your yard to help retain rainwater.
- Resurface driveways, parking pads, or patios with permeable pavement.
- Disconnect your downspout from the sewer system. See DWM’s website for a guide on downspout disconnection.

Today, the #MWRD Board of Commissioners will vote to adopt a resolution declaring access to water and sanitation are human rights. The resolution also states that water within the Great Lakes region should remain in a public trust to ensure transparency and safety for all citizens. The resolution is expected to pass unanimously. I am proud to support this effort and continue towards this goal at the city level as a cosponsor of the Water for All ordinance with Alderman La Spata 1st Ward SOUL - Southsiders Organized for Unity and Liberation and Food & Water Watch - Midwest

I congratulate Commissioner Cameron Davis and fellow board members. We stand with #MWRD and support their decision to provide clarity and leadership for our water resources. #OurWaterOurRight #Down2TheLastDrop #CleanWater4All

Beginning Monday, June 7th, LRS will take over recycling services for the city of Chicago. This is a welcome departure from Waste Management. Schedules for recycling pickup will remain the same. Our office will be working closely with our recycling liaison to ensure a smooth transition in the 35th Ward.

LRS, formerly known as Lakeshore Recycling Systems, has been identified as the new service provider for our residential Blue Cart recycling program as part of the ongoing efforts to improve recycling and waste diversion in Chicago. The transition will take place on Monday, June 7th in recycling areas currently serviced by Waste Management.

The only change you may see are different trucks picking up your recyclables. The week and day of collection services will remain the same and there will not be any changes in services. While we do not anticipate any service interruptions, any missed pick-up requests can be called in to 3-1-1 or entered into the CHI311 App.
