Chicago Shovels


Chicago is strongest when people, government and business work together in the face of adversity, challenges, and even Mother Nature. Chicago Shovels is a tool to help connect the public with City winter resources and empower neighbors to come together to help Chicago navigate winter.
Last winter, The Mayor's Office unveiled Chicago Shovels, an interactive website designed for residents to access information and lend a hand in snow-clearing efforts. At chicagoshovels.org, people can see the locations of snow plows in real-time and sign up for Snow Corps to help the city's most vulnerable citizens by shoveling their walkways.
Snow Corps, part of Chicago Shovels, is the program that connects volunteers with residents in need of snow removal. The response from volunteers was strong last winter and this year we'd like to help empower snow efforts in our ward. Together, we can ensure that each and every Chicagoan who is in need can have access to walking and transit.

Pharmaceutical Disposal Drop Boxes Now Available in All Chicago Police Stations

The Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) in partnership with the Chicago Police Department (CPD) announced that its pharmaceutical disposal drop box program is now available at all Chicago police stations to allow citywide accessibility for the proper disposal of expired and unused prescription and over-the-counter drugs.

Available 24 hours a day year-round, Chicago's pharmaceutical disposal program offers residents a convenient and environmentally friendly alternative to flushing medicines into the waste water stream or placing them in municipal landfills. The main goals of the program are to help avoid unintended use, reduce or prevent recreational pharmaceutical use and to keep contaminants out of Chicago's public waterways. By using the police facilities as a drop-off location, controlled substances can be deposited safely and destroyed under the observation of sworn law enforcement officials. Please remove all labels from bottles or boxes before depositing in the drop box.

The police stations in the Logan Square Area are:
14th District Police Station - 2150 N. California Av.
25th District Police Station - 5555 W. Grand Av.
