Daylight Savings Time begins this Sunday, March 11


Clocks are springing forward one hour this weekend, a reminder to change and test the batteries in your smoke alarm. 

Illinois law requires every household to have smoke alarms within 15 feet of every bedroom and at least one alarm on each floor of the home.

The National Fire Protection Association provides the following tips for installation and maintenance of smoke alarms:
• Install alarms close to each sleeping area of the house and on every level of the house. Ensure that the alarms are interconnected so when one sounds, they all do.
• Change alarm batteries at least twice a year. Daylight Savings Time is a reminder to “Change your Clock, Change your Batteries.”
• Test alarms at least once a month.
• Replace all smoke alarms when they are ten years old.
• Closed doors may slow the spread of smoke.
• Smoke alarms should be a part of a larger home escape plan for emergencies. Visit the NFPA website for more information on home escape planning

Recycle the Tree in Glenview

When it's time to dispose of the Christmas tree, think about recycling it. During the month of January, trees can be brought to six designated collection points for recycling as mulch that will nourish plantings in Glenview parks:
  • Glenview Public Works, 2498 East Lake Avenue         
  • Johns Park, 2101 Central Road
  •  Flick Park, 3600 Glenview Road
  •  Cunliff Park, 560 Echo Lane
  •  Cole Park, 1031 Kenilworth Avenue 
  •  Willow Park, 2600 Greenwood Avenue
Alternatively, residents in single-family homes, duplexes and multifamily properties that have opted into the Village's refuse and recycling program can put trees, wreaths and garlands out with the regular garbage during the month of January. Groot will collect them at no additional charge.

All ornaments, lights and tinsel should be removed from all trees. Do NOT cover the tree with a plastic disposal bag.
