Garbage Can Reminder !!!
All residents in Town recently received a very large blue trash can. This can is for trash only.
The black can received a few years ago is still used for recycling.
All household trash needs to be put curbside in a trash can with a lid preferably in the new blue can.
If the new can is too cumbersome
than any can with a tight fitting lid can be used . Trash is still being put out in

plastic bags and making a mess when the bags break open or rip.
Do not block sidewalks with trash cans or other trash. Please help keep
Landover Hills clean by putting out your trash properly.


Tires
If you have old tires that you need to get rid of, please place them at the curbside for pick- up. They will not be picked up by the trash company, but by the public works department for disposal. If you would like to arrange a special  pick-up for tires, call Town Hall at 301-773- 6401.
 


Neighborhood News
The Town is looking for "Neighborhood News" to put in the Town's newsletter, Cable Station and Web Page. If you would like to submit an item please call 301-773-6401 or e-mail the town at LNDVRHLLS@aol.com. Suggested items are birth announcements, graduations, birthdays, death notices, family members in the military, anniversaries etc.
 

 

In Case of Emergency (ICE)

Paramedics will turn to a victim's cell phone for clues to that persons identity. You can make their job much easier with a simple idea that they are trying to get everyone to adopt: ICE.

ICE stands for In Case of Emergency. If you add an entry in the contacts list in your cell phone under ICE, with the name and phone number of the person that the emergency services should call on your behalf, you can save them a lot of time and have your loved ones contacted quickly. It only takes a few moments of your time to do.

Paramedics know what ICE means and they look for it immediately. ICE your cell phone NOW!


Recycling
 If you should have any problems with re-cycling or need a new container,
please call the following number: 301-952-7630.

 
 

Special Note about Refrigerators

When putting out refrigerators for bulk trash pick-up, remember you must first REMOVE THE DOORS! Refrigerators pose a real hazard to small children who may suffocate after climbing into them and getting trapped.

Code Enforcement Reminders

Rodent Proofing Your Property
Inside and Out

Over the last month or so we have received calls from concerned residents about seeing rats on or near their property.
Here are some tips to help residents keep unwanted visitors away from their homes and yards.

Inside

1. Inspect your basement and house for cracks and holes. Seal them with mortar. Rodents can slip through holes as small as a dime.

2. Make sure you have screens on your basement windows. Repair holes and tears.

3. Keep outside doors closed. Use metal trim to prevent rodents from gnawing and entering underneath.

4. Don't leave extra pet food out. Store food in a plastic, metal or glass container with a tight-fitting lid.

5. Clean up food and crumbs. Don't store food in lower cabinets.

Outside

1. Keep trash in heavy plastic or metal containers with tight-fitting lids.

2. Place trash outside shortly before pick-up time. Do not leave plastic bags outside overnight.

3. Keep yard free of weeds, trash and debris, so rats and mice don't have shelter or food.

4. Don't leave pet foods and waste outside.

5. Clutter attracts rodents. Dispose of unused building materials, boxes and yard waste promptly. Store lumber off the ground   on a rack with clean, open space underneath.

6. Keep all vegetation 2 to 3 feet away from walls. Cut grass frequently to eliminate hiding places. Remove all standing water.

7. Trim shrubs and trees regularly so branches do not touch the ground.

8. Clean up fallen fruit and seeds regularly so rats can't eat them.
