Holiday Decorating Safety Tips from Ameren Missouri

As the holiday season approaches, Ameren Missouri is urging customers to make safety a factor in holiday decorating. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, over 12,000 people are treated at hospital emergency rooms for injuries, such as falls, cuts, and shocks, all being related to holiday lights, while Christmas trees are involved in nearly 300 fires annually, resulting in more than $10 million in property loss and damage. Click this link to view safety tips to keep in mind for holiday decorating - rwww.ameren.com/community-members/safety/home-safety-tips.

How to Keep Your Driveway Entrance
From Filling with Snow

Throughout the winter months, State, County, and City snowplow crews will be out clearing the highways, roads, and streets during and after each snowfall. Homeowners and other property owners will be clearing their driveways at the same time.

Many times, while this is going on, a snowplow truck will go by and fill in the end of a freshly cleared private driveway with snow from the roadway. This is not intentional, and there is a way this wintertime inconvenience can be minimized.

The diagram below shows how you can clear snow around the end or your driveway, opening a certain way to reduce the possibility that you will have to do very much re-clearing after a snowplow truck goes by on the road next to your driveway.

The idea is to place as much snow as possible when clearing your driveway, in the direction of travel downstream on your side of the roadway. Next is to clear an area upstream from your driveway opening to form a "pocket" for the snow from the roadway to go into instead of at the end of your driveway.

The result is more of the snow accumulation from clearing the roadway will go into this open pocket area and less will wind up at the end of your driveway.

A note of caution is in order. Please be extremely careful when working next to the roadway—especially when snowplowing operations are in progress.

Holiday Light Recycling

The City of Wildwood is pleased to once again partner with Meridian Waste Services’ Holiday Light Recycling Program. No longer wanted strands of holiday lights may be placed in the dumpster supplied for this specific purpose at the end of Wildwood Avenue, which is located just to the east of the Wildwood Municipal Building. Please do not place light strands in your regular trash, as they become tangled in the equipment at the landfills. Please do not place them in the curbside recycling containers, since they will not be accepted in the weekly pickup.  Please help keep the City of Wildwood the eco-friendly community we are known to be by placing those unwanted light strands in the appropriate dumpster on Wildwood Avenue.
