Lonsdale Police Department News

I hate to bring up garbage containers but, I have noticed a lot of garbage containers being stored in the front yard area or in front of the garage. The last thing we want to have to do is write citations but, if this needs to be addressed again it will not be with warnings. So for those in violation please move your garbage containers inside or out of the front yard area or behind the front of the garage. 91.04 (I) Accumulation of garbage, trash, yard waste or refuse not stored inside the dwelling unit, garage or at a point behind the front of the dwelling unit or garage, except between the hours of 6:00 p.m. the night before collection and 10:00 p.m. on the designated collection day, during which time all garbage, trash, yard waste or refuse, properly contained may be deposited at the curb; of the Lonsdale Code of Ordinances.

This is the dumpster at Jaycee Park. It is for trash that is accumulated while at the park. Not a community dumpster for you to put your old lawn edging in. Also, while an officer was locking the bathrooms, about 10 items of trash were collected near the basketball court which included pop bottles, cans, and food wrappers. All of the items were about 30 feet from a garbage can. Please do your best to keep our parks and community clean for everyone, and remind your kids to as well.

It has been brought to the Lonsdale Police Department's attention that citizens have been leaving their empty cardboard boxes on the side of the dumpster at Mackenthun's. The cardboard has began to blow away in the wind. If the dumpster is full, please come back again later to dispose of your cardboard boxes. Lonsdale Police Department
