I know many of you don’t live in Western Springs, but I wanted to let you know about this huge garbage day because believe it or not, people throw away tons of good stuff, especially for kids! Should I be embarrassed that I have looked through the garbage?! (Does it help that everyone does it?) I found a perfectly good Little Tikes picnic table one year… You can find cool furniture that someone didn’t want to refinish or a good fire pit that needed to be left behind before moving. Drive around and take a look.
The Village of Western Springs will hold its annual Spring Cleanup Day on Saturday, May 5, 2012.
