Personal Protection Tip: Deactivate Milk Chutes

Personal Protection Tip: Many older homes still have fully functional milk chutes. These portals were designed for dairy deliverymen to deliver milk, eggs, vegetables, and other perishable items to consumers. However, home delivery of the aforementioned items waned as late as the 1970's.

Currently, these openings not only waste energy but also present a security issue. It is not uncommon for burglars to enlist the aid of someone small enough to enter the home through this opening to facilitate a break-in. Accordingly, all homes with functioning milk chutes should be retrofitted to prevent unwanted intruders. The openings can readily be sealed with bricks by a competent mason.
