436 Walnut Court

It is important to keep the abandoned houses in Springfield looking as good as possible. If you are interested in mowing around a particular house, please sign up here. This way, we are less likely to forget one, and we are going to avoid some duplicate work.

Please only one thread per address.

Walked by the house yesterday, and the trash is still outside. I will check this weekend on the bags and see if they are too heavy, maybe re-bag some of it. Then file a CARE request if it is not picked up the coming week?

Was going to file an e-care, but didn't want to start any issues with code enforcement

was thinking about the same thing, but I think the issue would be more directed at the garbage pickup. This may be a larger issue we need to address: picking up garbage at empty lots and condemned houses. I just checked on the city website, and we are being charged the "solid waste" and the "stormwater" fees.

Let me file a care request first, asking for a clarification about the pickup policy, not associated to a particular property (if that's possible).

My e-mail:
" Could you please clarify if city garbage pickup will pickup trash left in front of condemned houses? I do see trash properly bagged in front of condemned houses getting missed during normal pickup. These are condemend single family homes and the trash is usually yard waste and a bag or two with regular trash the owners picked up around the property."
Response:

Good Afternoon
Pickup should continue. Please advise the address. Thanks for your help.

There are also plenty of trash bags in 1950 Dancy Terrace.

I only have keys for the gate at this house, and the lock to the door of the other Walnut court, I can't go get supplies. I had used up the trash bags I brought from home, which are just regular ones.
