JP real estate agent Mary Wallace gave voice to one line of argument as the city starts picking up space savers on trash days this week. She made a sign reading, “(Snow Pile) Take Me, I’m a Space Saver” on snow-choked Asticou Road.

On one hand, the city has faced some backlash to removing space savers, given that so many spots on neighborhood streets are filled by snow.

On the other hand, some residents are celebrating the formal end of space savers.
