Notice from the City of Pawtucket Regarding Motor Vehicle Taxes and Automated Trash Collection

Below are important updates related to your motor vehicle taxes and automated trash.

Motor Vehicle Taxes

The City of Pawtucket will be holding off on sending motor vehicle taxes until we receive more clarity from the State. We want to get this right and not cause additional confusion for you, our taxpayers, in the future.

Rather than issuing vehicle tax bills now to over 50,000 people, and potentially overcharging taxpayers, the City anticipates generating bills in September depending on the passage of the RI Budget. The deadline for first quarter payment of car tax bills will be extended to accommodate the delay.

For any taxpayers who have questions or concerns, please reach out by emailing TaxInfo@pawtucketri.com or calling 401-728-0500 ext. 344.

Automated Trash Collection

Automated trash bin delivery has begun by the vendor, and automated trash collection is set to begin the week of August 11th. All carts will be delivered with an informational hanger to provide residents with details of the program.

Please feel free to contact the Department of Public Works with any questions or concerns at 401-728-0500 ext. 233 or email dpw@pawtucketri.com.

Thank you and please stay safe.
