How You Can Support Local Businesses
The City of Wheaton encourages the community to consider doing what you can to support our local businesses, including restaurants, retail establishments, service providers and others. For ideas on how you can support local businesses in these challenging times, the Downtown Wheaton Association and Wheaton Chamber of Commerce are resources.
Yard Waste Pickup Resumes Next Week
Lakeshore Recycling Systems will resume yard waste pickups starting next week on your normal pickup day. You can use containers no larger than 35 gallons in size or biodegradable paper bags. Each container or biodegradable bag must weigh no more than 50 pounds and must have 1 yard waste/organics/garbage sticker attached in order to be collected.
Traffic Detour for One Block of Main Street
A traffic detour began Thursday, March 26, for the block of Main Street between Front Street and Wesley Street and is expected to last approximately two weeks. With many businesses closed under the Governor’s Stay at Home Executive Order and reduced daytime traffic, the City has brought in a second construction crew for the Downtown Streetscape Project to expedite work and reduce the amount of overall disruption to businesses. Crews will reopen this block to vehicle traffic each evening.
Thank you for your patience as crews work to make important infrastructure improvements.
