The Larchmont Business Improvement District (LVBID) has been doing some spring
cleaning. It recently hung brightly colored banners featuring the iconic boulevard clock on light posts to help identify and brand the village.
A recurring City permit means they’ll hang permanently except when switched with holiday lights each winter or for upcoming village events.
On the street level, concrete trashcans were replaced with 13 Big Belly solar-powered trash
and five recycling compacting containers. A pilot program in November, funded by a grant from Councilman Tom LaBonge’s office, introduced recycling to the boulevard. The solar containers were well received, and are now a permanent fixture.
The LVBID arranged for the newly-formed Melrose BID to haul away the old trash containers for use there.
