Weekend Diving Opp

One more for the spring diving calendar is the city of  Highland Park’s clean-up days.  As far as I know, there are no tales of the big score affiliated with the clean- up, but the four dates for pickup are all on Saturday, which is convenient for anyone who may still be employed with a 9-5 job.   Might be worth the trip, even if you wind up at the downtown movie theater that shows second runs. Or the Dairy Queen.

Here’s a map and the dates of where the Saturday pick-ups will occur.  This info is also published on the city’s website here.


For resident who receive normal service on Mondays: April 25 will be the special spring pickup date.
For resident who receive normal service on Tuesdays: May 2
For resident who receive normal service on Thursdays: May 9
For resident who receive normal  service on Fridays: May 16

To recap the dates posted this week, we have:
Winnetka Clean-up days from April 27-April 30.  I’ll be Twittering a live dive on the 27th.
