Bloomington launches email and text subscriptions for roadwork, solid waste and snow


The City of Bloomington's Public Works Department said Monday it's launching three new email and text subscriptions to keep the public informed about roadwork, solid waste and snow.

The Bloomington Streets subscription includes regular status updates for resurfacing and other updates related to asphalt and concrete roadwork. The Solid Waste Updates subscription includes important updates and status updates for free bulk pickup and seasonal leaf collection events that typically occur in May, October, November and December. The Snow Updates subscription includes important updates and status updates before and during snow and/or ice events.

The public can sign up for these subscriptions by visiting bloomingtonil.gov/subscribe, completing the requested information and selecting one or more of the lists under the Public Works heading near the bottom of the subscription list. The City offers subscriptions for other departments and topics through the same system. The system also allows people to set preferences such as how often they would like to receive updates.
