Get Your 'Dibs' Items By Tuesday or Else They'll Be Trashed


If you have your 'dibs' item on the street to save your parking spot, make sure to clear it by Tuesday or else it will be trash!

You've been warned: Trash crews will start clearing streets of objects used as "dibs" for parking spots Tuesday.

Crews will pick up unclaimed items along their daily garbage collection routes with special attention given to address 311 complaints, the Department of Streets and Sanitation said Thursday.

"Dibs" is a controversial practice popular in Chicago in which motorists claim parking spots cleared of snow. The practice has led to confrontations between neighbors, including an Andersonville man who found his car window smashed with a "dibs" chair earlier in February.

Yikes. Dibs clearly gets intense. Make sure to clear your space!
