City: 'Place-Holders' for Parking Will Be Thrown Out Tuesday
If you are using chairs, cones or other objects to save your shoveled-out parking spot, get them out ASAP - trash collectors will start disposing of them Tuesday morning.
Residents take note: as trash collection begins after the Monday holiday, collectors will begin targeting stray objects left as street-parking placeholders Tuesday morning.
While the practice has no legal basis, most neighborhoods have informal rules about saving parking spaces after a major snow incident.
The City of Malden Facebook page reported the development Monday night.
"Calling all chairs, tires, cones, ironing boards etc," the announcement reads. "This week we will be removing all parking space savers as they are prohibited in our city.
"They will be treated as trash and thrown away so if you care about them, don't put them out tomorrow morning."
