What will happen to my old address sign? Can I keep it?
It depends on which municipality you live in...
Some municipalities will have the workers from Lange Enterprises collect the old signs for the municipality to recycle. Other towns and villages will allow property owners to keep their old sign (if desired) after the new Uniform Address sign is installed and the old sign is removed.
If your municipality allows for you to keep an existing flag-style address sign (and you wish to keep it), place a single, noticeable band of duct tape (any color) around the post. The Lange Enterprises workers will leave your removed, taped sign on the ground next to your newly installed address sign.
If there’s no duct tape around the post (because you don’t wish to keep it) or if your municipality doesn’t allow for you to keep the sign, the old address sign and signpost will be removed from your property for recycling.
