Lakewood Police: Do Not Tow Garbage Cans On Cars


The Lakewood Police Department Traffic and Safety Bureau reminds residents that it is not permitted to tow garbage cans behind vehicles or having passengers sit in the rear of minivans or other automobiles and hold onto the garbage can while towing it to a drop off site. Passengers inside a moving automobile shall be properly restrained at all times and all doors and hatches shall be closed. Police officers and crossing guards will be on locations as well as Public Works employees for your safety. Please use extreme car when arriving and dropping off your bulk items, watch for small children moving in and around the drop off locations. Remember safety first Chometz second.

Please use caution when dropping of in around the burn locations. Again a reminder not to be towing garbage cans from vehicles.

Next year, the Department of Public Works is exploring the possibility of more home pickups and fewer or no more drop off locations. Please stay tuned for future updates.
