Starting Monday, if there's trash pickup on your street, city crews are also chucking space savers.

Mayor Marty Walsh last week earned cheers from space saver supporters by temporarily lifting the "Menino" rule. That's the decree that space savers not be used longer than 48 hours after the end of a snow emergency.

But that was last week. Starting Monday, any space savers still in use are subject to being put in the trash.

On Monday morning, the Boston Globe's Steve Annear has already encountered resistance to the change in Southie.
