You’ve marked it on your calendar, written little reminders and tied rubber bands to your finger all in an effort to remember to move your car because it’s street cleaning day. That day is about to change for some Jamaica Plain residents
JPNC member Michael Reiskind said Boston Department of Public Works will clean streets in Jamaica Plain one day after the currently posted days in most signed areas beginning April 1 – Mondays will become Tuesdays in 2013, Fridays will become Mondays.
Currently, trash pickup and street cleaning days are the same in JP, but BPD found that this created a situation in which trash crews would begin to show up too late and street cleaners would show up early, Reiskind said.
The city will change the signage beginning in March.
“We’re urging everybody to start in March to look at your street cleaning signs so you don’t get surprised in April,” Reiskind said.
Street cleaning is performed between April 1 and Nov. 31 in Jamaica Plain. Cars parked on street cleaning streets during a cleaning are subject to ticketing and towing.
